Sustainable Preservation Practices for Managing Storage
Environments--Series III is funded by the National Endowment for the
Humanities Education and Training Grant Program, and presented by
the Image Permanence Institute, Rochester Institute of Technology.

A third round of this highly successful series of free workshops and
webinars for collections care, facilities, and administrative staff
in cultural institutions will begin this fall. Workshop registration
is now open

To learn more and to register visit


Presentations are designed to enable collections care and facilities
staff in cultural institutions to work together to define and
achieve an optimal preservation environment-one that combines the
best possible preservation of collections with the least possible
consumption of energy, and is sustainable over time. Over 2,000
individuals participated in the last two series, and 99.5% rated the
presentations clear, useful, well organized, and relevant.

Series III workshops will convey the latest information and best
practices for sustainable management of collection storage
environments. Participants will receive two full days of practical
information on understanding mechanical system functions,
responsible energy-saving strategies, and guidelines for managing
changes in environmental settings without reducing preservation
quality. Each participants will receive a copy of IPI's Guide to
Sustainable Preservation Practices for Managing Storage
