    The tools of a museum professional include a basic understanding

    an overview of current preservation issues, from environmental
    monitoring to collection cleaning, exhibit mounts and storage
    furniture. Covering every aspect of the modern museum, and how
    the building, staff and fixtures affect preservation of the
    collection, this workshop provides an overview that participants
    can use in future decision-making about their collection. Agents
    of deterioration, risk management, object handling and
    transport, object labeling, exhibit lighting, security,
    emergency preparedness, materials for storage and display,
    storage and exhibit philosophies, and condition assessments will
