Workshops

Care of Collections – Plus

This one-day seminar is designed for those who have previously attended one of our Care of Collections seminars – and are interested in more detailed and focussed approaches for preventive conservation of collections. Building on the principles of preventive conservation covered in the first seminar, this day offers more in-depth information on specific areas – such as lighting, and environmental control. We also encourage participants to bring along information regarding a problem they may have with their collection, so the group can develop the solution together using preventive conservation principles.

Areas covered include:

  • Preparing and implementing a Preservation Plan
  • Lighting – recent developments; choosing the best system; lighting for displays
  • Environmental control – air conditioning and sustainability; passive methods; understanding and stabilising your environment; interpreting data logger information
  • Mould and its myths
  • Storage challenges – and solutions
