Sustainable Preservation Practices for Managing Storage Environments
Series II

The Image Permanence Institute (IPI) is pleased to announce that the
National Endowment for the Humanities Education and Training grant
program has provided funding for Sustainable Preservation Practices
for Managing Storage Environments-Series II. This popular series is
designed to enable collections care and facilities staff in cultural
institutions to work together to achieve an optimal preservation
environment-one that combines the best preservation of collections
with the least possible consumption of energy possible, and is
sustainable over time.

Series II will provide instruction and guidance based on current
research and field practice through four regional workshops and nine
topical webinars-all free of charge. Workshop sites include:

    The Denver Art Museum
    Denver, Colorado
    August 15-16, 2012

    Folger Shakespeare Library
    Washington DC
    September 12-13, 2012

    Vizcaya Art Museum and Gardens
    Miami, Florida
    October 16-17, 2012

    Newberry Library, Chicago
    Illinois
    November 14-15, 2012

Participants will receive two full days of practical, understandable
information and a copy of IPI's Sustainable Preservation Practices
guidebook. Last year's series was extremely popular and venues
filled up quickly. Register for workshops now on

   "The Georgia Archives was one of the host sites during the first
    series, and several participants told me personally that this
    was the best professional workshop they have ever attended."

        -Christine Wiseman, Preservation Services Manager, Georgia

Series II webinars will be scheduled between January and June 2013.
Presentations will focus on broad environmental challenges and
provide useful and effective suggestions for dealing with them. The
list of webinar topics is available on the project website. Schedule
details will be available as soon as specific dates are selected.

A successful collaboration between collections care and facilities
management staff produces the best results. We strongly encourage a
team approach and suggest that institutions register participants
representing collections, facilities, and administrative staff.
