This one day seminar will discuss practical issues in the
specification of display cases.  Topics to be covered include
materials used in case construction and internal fittings, case
lighting and how to make sure you get the silica gel compartment you
asked for.   It will look at the relationship between case structure
and air exchange, how to measure air tightness, how to monitor and
control the environment within a case. In the afternoon a variety of
display cases in the Fitzwilliam Museum will be examined in detail
and their performance scrutinised.
