New book: Planning and Constructing Book and Paper Conservation Laboratories

From: Jennifer Hain Teper <jhain<-at->

A new publication on the construction of book and paper conservation
labs has just been released by the ALCTS publications office of the
American Library Association.  The work, Planning and Constructing
Book and Paper Conservation Laboratories, contains contributions by
thirteen experts from the conservation field, and offers both
planning and technical chapters.  Planning chapters introduce
concepts in project management, space planning, hybrid approaches to
lab design and ergonomic considerations.  Technical chapters present
key considerations one must incorporate during conservation lab
construction projects, such as the use and design of a fume hood or
ventilation system, water purification set up, lighting
considerations, custom built furniture design and quarantine space
planning. Further topical chapters offer unique perspectives for
special lab considerations such as labs for work on flat paper
collections or privately run conservation labs.
