Environmental Monitoring Workshop from California Preservation Program

Environmental Monitoring to Preserve Collections and Save Energy!

September 5, 2012 – California State University, Sacramento Library – 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
September 7, 2012 – California State University, Dominguez Hills Library – 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Workshop instructor: James M. Reilly, Director, Image Permanence Institute
This one-day program will explore new approaches to controlling environmental conditions in cultural institutions. A leading expert in the field, Reilly will present physically and financially feasible environmental control strategies to help institutions preserve collections materials for the long-term.

After a short introduction to essential concepts describing the relationships among temperature, relative humidity and collection preservation, attendees will learn how to read and interpret data from PEM2s* and other dataloggers; how to use eClimate Notebook**; and how to practically apply that knowledge – to optimize conditions to maximize service lives of collections, and to minimize energy consumption by heating, ventilating, and cooling (HVAC) systems while achieving satisfactory environmental conditions.

  • Understanding the Building/Climate Relationship
  • Environmental Monitoring and Data Analysis
  • New Approaches and Best Practices for Environmental Control
