New site--eClimateNotebook (eCNB)

The Image Permanence Institute is happy to announce the release of (eCNB), a web-based environmental data
management system designed to help archives, libraries, and museums
do more than simply collect and store data. eCNB can help you manage
the storage environment for preservation, analyze the effect of
temperature and relative humidity on your collection, and reduce the
risk posed by inappropriate environmental conditions. eCNB promotes
better communication between collection care and facility management
staff, enabling institutions to develop and institute sustainable
preservation practices that balance the need for energy savings with
responsible collection care and long-term preservation.

Previous generations of this system include IPI's former data
management websites, and, as well as
our original desktop software, Climate Notebook. Since development,
maintenance, and technical support for two web-based systems and
Climate Notebook took a great deal of staff time, it made sense to
focus our efforts on developing one unified system that would
assimilate the strengths of our existing systems into a single,
unified platform. Incorporating a range of "levels" within the
system allows us to meet the needs of a variety of users. Using the
web enables us to provide all system upgrades automatically to users
and allows them to transition seamlessly from one level of data
management and analysis to another. The annual subscription rate
charged (based on the number of location datasets and institutional
users-there is also a free level) supports the development of new
features, serves our educational mission, and allows us to continue
to provide free technical support and professional advice to users.

We've seen some discussion about IPI's PEM2 datalogger, Climate
Notebook, and on various professional
listserves recently and want to confirm that you *can* compare
locations at each level of eCNB, including the free level. Please
feel free to contact IPI if you have any questions about the PEM2 or
eCNB, or click on the links below for additional information about
