A Preservation Plan is an essential document that helps an institution carefully chart a 5-10 year course for the preservation of collections artifacts. Without planning, it can be nearly impossible to effectively budget staff time and resources for collections care. In this workshop, participants will receive guidance on how to create a Preservation Plan. Participants will study sample Plans and practice establishing goals, objectives, and strategies to developing an effective Plan. The speaker will discuss how to sustain appropriate environments for long-term preservation and explain the impact of temperature, relative humidity, light, mold, and good housekeeping on collections.
