    from the Environmental Monitoring and Control page in

These online articles available on the ASHRAE web site were brought
to my attention by Peter Herzog and June Wheeler. The title of the
page is "Practical Guide to Museums and Historic Renovation." and it
can be found at <URL:>

The following articles are available on-line (PDF).

You'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view it, but it is free and you
can get Acrobat from the previously mentioned page. You'll see the

article which you can either download as a PDF file or read via
Acrobat. "Read" will get you to Mark's slide presentation that can
be viewed via Acrobat as well. You'll probably find some artifacts
if you print the articles (squished letters and things like that),
but the screen version is fine.
