Preservation Planning and Environmental Management 

A Preservation Plan is an essential institutional document that helps collections care professionals thoughtfully and carefully chart a course for the preservation of their artifacts for five to ten years. Without planning, it can be nearly impossible to effectively budget for staff time and resources, and the care of priceless collections often suffer.

In this workshop, the speaker will provide guidance on how to create a Preservation Plan. Participants will have the opportunity to explore sample Plans as well as practice creating goals, objectives, and strategies to make an effective Plan.

In the afternoon, participants will learn about collections environments and how to manage conditions to be appropriate for the long-term preservation of artifacts. The speaker will discuss temperature, relative humidity, light, pests, mold, and housekeeping, and discuss how they can affect collections care.
