Workshop on environmental monitoring

From: David Stokoe <djstokoe>
Date: Wednesday, August 8, 2007
Environmental Monitoring: what, where and why
Liverpool Public Library
Syracuse, NY
September 19, 2007
9:30 am - 3:30 pm


    Michele Phillips, West Lake Conservators;
    Susan Hughes, Regional Archivist, CLRC

    $45     CLRC members and DHP organizations
    $55     others

    In order to qualify for the CLRC's DHP organization rate: you
    must represent a nonprofit organization, such as an archives,
    library, historical society, museum or other organization, that
    holds, collects and makes available historical records (i.e.:
    local history collections, manuscript and photograph
    collections, organizational records, etc.); and your
    organization must be located within the CLRC region of Onondaga,
    Oneida, Madison and Herkimer counties.

Monitoring the environment is essential to ensuring the long-term
survival of collections in libraries, archives, museums and other
records repositories.  Proper temperature, relative humidity and the
mitigation of other detrimental environmental factors are the
foundation of a good preservation plan.

Participants will learn the importance of monitoring temperature,
relative humidity, light levels, pests and water.  Professional
standards for taking and recording measurements will also be
discussed.  Also, learn about an opportunity to participate in
CLRC's proposed Regional Environmental Monitoring Project which if
funded will begin in spring 2008.  Participants in the proposed
project will receive monitoring equipment, instruction, and a report
with recommendations for improvements prepared by the project's
consulting conservator.

If you are interested in participating in this project a
representative from your institution must attend this workshop.
(Please note: While the workshop is open to all, participation in
the proposed Environmental Monitoring Project is limited to
libraries and repositories in Onondaga, Oneida, Madison and Herkimer
