“When Less is All You Got! Budget-conscious solutions to protect collections on display and in storage”
April 21, 2015, 2:00 – 3:30, EDT, with Ernest Conrad and Lisa Mibach.
In an ideal world, all buildings that house and display collections would have purpose-designed environmental control systems that work, enclosed display cases, chemically-neutral storage and display cases and containers, and enough trained staff to care for collections. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.
The first part of the webinar will illustrate the diagnostic effects of the lack of environmental controls, and will discuss budget-conscious solutions to protect collections on display and in storage. The second part will deal with proper storage and display conditions so that objects can weather minor disruptions. If you don’t have ideal storage and display conditions, you need to have regularly updated priority lists of objects (in order of vulnerability) to check during/after an environmental failure or change.
