Storage Environments
Berkeley California
November 4-5, 2014

The California Preservation Program is pleased to announce and to
host a workshop on Sustainable Preservation Practices for Managing
Storage Environments on November 4-5, 2014 This free two-day
workshop will be held at the David Brower Center, 2150 Alston Way,
Suite 100, Berkeley, CA.

Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and presented by
the Image Permanence Institute (IPI), workshop registration is now

To register or to learn more visit


Topic and schedule details will be available at


when they are finalized.

Presentations are designed to enable collections care, facilities,
and administrative 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.
The workshop 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 participant will receive a copy of IPI's Guide to Sustainable
Preservation Practices for Managing Storage Environments.

There is no registration fee for the workshop, but space is
limited-register early if you are certain that you can attend.  We
strongly encourage a team approach and suggest that institutions
register more than one participant in order to represent
collections, facilities, and administrative responsibilities.
