Workshop on "The Museum Building and Environment"
Australian Museum,
Sydney, Australia
June 7-11, 1999.

The five day course is designed for Museums, Libraries, and Archives

relevant to personnel managing collections. Topics covered through
both lectures and practicals will include environmental standards,
risk analysis, disaster preparedness, passive and active climate
control, monitoring of micro-environment, building orientation and
design, appropriate design to avoid condensation, optimising
microclimate through design and materials selection, low impact and
sustainable materials selection, and dealing with indoor and outdoor
pollutants. The emphasis of the course will be on training the
participant to get an overview on the various issues affecting a
museum building, and thus be able to design/retrofit any building
for the long term preservation of their collections. Instructors
include Architects, Building Scientists and Museum Professionals

(CSIRO), Ivan Cole (CSIRO), Vinod Daniel (Australian Museum),
Lorraine Gibson (Netherlands Institute for Cultural Heritage), Colin
