Protecting Cultural Collections from Pests and Mold
Portland, OR
October 2-3, 2003

The Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts (CCAHA) and
the Balboa Art Conservation Center (BACC) are presenting two
workshops on protecting cultural collections from mold and pests to
be held in Portland OR on October 2-3, 2003.  Co-sponsored by
PORTALS (Portland Area Library System), Orbis Cascade Alliance, and
OCLC Western Service, the workshops are partially funded by the
National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).

Controlling Pests: Where Eating Is Not Permitted
Thursday, October 2, 2003

    This workshop is designed as an introduction to integrated pest
    management (IPM) for cultural institutions.  The IPM approach to
    preventing and managing insect infestation relies on regular
    monitoring, documentation, and primarily non-chemical
    prevention.  The workshop will include information on developing
    an IPM program, and a review of pests most often found in
    cultural collections.

    Workshop Location:

        Portland State University
        Smith Memorial Union (Student Union)
        1825 SW Broadway - Room 296
        Portland, OR

Be Prepared: Managing A Mold Invasion
Friday, October 3, 2003

    This workshop provides an understanding of how and why mold
    blooms occur and gives strategies for prevention.  The immediate
    responses to inactivate an outbreak will be reviewed in addition
    to follow-up procedures to prevent future outbreaks.  The safety
    and health hazards will also be underscored.

    Workshop Location:

        Multnomah County Central Library
        US Bank Room
        801 S.W. 10th Ave.
        Portland, OR 97205-2597

Note:  Attending both workshops is recommended but not required.

Speaker: Dr. Thomas Parker, President and entomologist for Pest
Control Services, Inc., Lansdowne, PA.  Dr. Parker attended the
University of Delaware School of Agriculture and Purdue University.
In 1975, he founded Pest Control Services, Inc., a consulting firm
that develops and implements integrated pest management programs for
museums, historic structures, libraries, and collections.

He often works professionally as an expert witness in litigation
matters, primarily involved with wood-destroying organisms.  Dr.
Parker has worked with collections and buildings threatened by mold,
insects, birds, bats, and rodents throughout the United States and
some foreign countries.  He has frequently lectured about recovery
from mold outbreaks and about integrated pest management programs
for cultural institutions.
