Guidelines for Selecting Display and Storage Products
Workshops 2006
AICCM in Association with the National Preservation Office (New

This series of two-day workshops will provide an overview of
products that are available in the market and used for making
display cases, mount making or used for storage purposes.  Wood
products, paper products, coatings, textiles and various types of
plastic products such as sheets, boards, boxes, foams, adhesives,
sealants, wire and tubes will be discussed. Some spot tests to
identify products will be demonstrated. The use of silica gels and
sorbents will also be covered. Basic rules for the selection of
products will be shown to avoid short and long term problems related
to off-gassing of products or staining due to contact with them.
Searching for information on the Internet will be demonstrated.

The workshop will be presented by a combination of different
formats: Powerpoint presentation, examination of samples, group
discussion, facility visits (visit to a storage and/or exhibition
area), with a good sense of humour.  Participants are welcome to
bring samples for discussion. Products used for treatment of objects
will be not covered in this workshop.

Target group: collection managers, conservators and exhibition

Instructor:  Jean Tetreault, (Senior Conservation Scientist from the
