Environmental Management: Stewardship and Sustainability
Presented by the Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts
Portland, OR
May 22, 2012

Cosponsored and hosted by
Portland Art Museum

Creating stable environmental conditions is the most significant
step an institution can take for the long-term preservation of the
collections materials under its stewardship.  While most
preservation actions affect single items or groups of items,
environmental conditions affect entire collections.

Though providing stable environmental conditions is a goal for most
archives, museums, and libraries, in actuality it can be very
difficult to achieve ideal specifications.  In addition to economic
limitations faced by many institutions, collections are often housed
in historic structures, in buildings with aging systems, or in
structures whose designs make environmental management difficult.

This one day program will explore new approaches to controlling
environmental conditions in cultural institutions.  Leading experts
in the field will present physically and financially feasible
environmental control strategies to help institutions preserve
collections materials for the long-term.

Topics covered will include:

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

This program is intended for staff of cultural heritage
organizations responsible for monitoring and managing environmental
conditions for collections, including registrars, facilities
managers, archivists, librarians, curators, collections managers,
and stewards of historic house museums.
