NYU Conservation Environment Workshops
March 6-8, 2000

The following workshops will be offered March 6-8, 2000, as part of
the Building and Construction Seminar Series at the New York
University Real Estate Institute.  They are a series of separate
one-day seminars from 9am to 5:30pm.  The topics are selected to be
practical and useful in planning and managing collection
environments, and are intended for museum, library and archives
professionals, such as conservators, curators, archivists,
registrars and directors, as well as for architects, engineers and
others involved in construction and facilities management for
collections-holding institutions.

Conservation Environments for Museums and Libraries
X63.9762/$185; March 6, 2000.

    This seminar discusses the issues involved in establishing safe
    "conservation" environments for preservation of museum, library
    and archive collections.  Environmental goals are discussed for
    humidity, temperature, lighting, particulate control, gaseous
    contamination, and collection safety.  Solutions to typical
    situations and problems are discussed for HVAC, lighting and
    building envelopes, including precautions to take in the design,
    construction and operation of conservation environments.
    Low-cost as well as fully- financed improvements are discussed.
    1.0 CEU.

Establishing a Conservation Environment Monitoring Program
X63.9769/$185; March 7, 2000.

    This seminar discusses how to establish a monitoring program for
    conservation environments in museums, libraries, and archives.
    Practical methods to monitor humidity, temperature, lighting,
    particulates, gaseous contamination and collection safety are
    discussed along with suggested equipment and practical field
    techniques.  1.0 CEU.

Fundamentals of Conservation Environment Lighting
X63.9766/$185; March 8, 2000.

    This seminar will discuss the issues involved in planning,
    designing and maintaining practical and effective conservation
    environment lighting in museums, libraries and archives.
    Applications for display and storage/stack lighting will be
    discussed, including typical calculations, light sources and
    equipment.  In-class demonstrations and light measurements will
    be made using typical light sources and measurement equipment.
    1.0 CEU.
