Workshops on environment

From: William P. Lull <wpl1>

NYU Conservation Environment Workshops
March 29 - April 1, 2003

The following workshops will be offered March 29 - April 1, 2003, 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.  Each workshop is eligible for 9
hours of AIA continuing education credits.

Establishing a Conservation Environment Monitoring Program
R63.9769/$270; March 29, 2004

    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; AIA-9 Hours.

Conservation Environments for Museums and Libraries
R63.9762/$270; March 30, 2004

    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 architecture,
    lighting, HVAC 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; AIA-9 Hours.

HVAC for Museums, Libraries, and Archives
R63.8035/$270; March 31, 2004.

    This seminar discusses the assessment, improvement, management,
    and operation of HVAC systems for preservation environments in
    museums, libraries, and archives.  Functional characteristics
    and typical configurations are considered, with efficacy, cost,
    and maintenance implications. Special cold storage and
    desiccant- based environments are outlined, as well as solutions
    for small projects and what typically goes wrong with installed
    systems.  1.0 CEU; AIA-9 Hours.

Reducing Energy Costs in Museums and Libraries
R63.2065/$270; April 1, 2004

    This seminar discusses typical opportunities to reduce annual
    energy use costs in museums, libraries and archives, with little
    or no impact on the environment for the collections within.
    Opportunities considered include changes to lighting, HVAC
    systems, glazing and operating schedules.  Special attention is
    given to efficiently meeting collections requirements for light,
    temperature and humidity control.  The calculations to predict
    savings as well as the rationale for utility energy charges are
    reviewed. 1.0 CEU; AIA-9 Hours.
