Book on pollutants in museums and archives

From: Jean Tetreault <jean_tetreault>
Date: Tuesday, April 20, 2004
We are pleased to add "Airborne Pollutants in Museums, Galleries and
Archives: Risk Assessment, Control Strategies, and Preservation
Management" to our series of publications. This book written by Jean
Tetreault attempts to define the key airborne pollutants for indoor
museum environments and provide some basic tools to assess the risk
to collections exposed to these pollutants. It also establishes
guidelines for control strategies that give flexible, pragmatic
solutions and provides a simple tool for cost-benefit analyses that
can fulfil the principles and policy of individual museums. It will
be an ideal reference for anyone (e.g. museum directors, building
and collection managers, conservation professionals, material
scientists, exhibit designers, HVAC engineers, indoor air
consultants, and architects) involved in making decisions regarding
the preservation of collections.
