Suppressed Storage Environments, Systems and Materials for
Photographic Albums, Prints, Glass and Plastic Negatives and
Positives including Colour.
Ref: 100/17
2-4 April 2013

    This three-day course is aimed at heritage professionals with a
    responsibility for the care, usage and extended-term
    preservation of photographic collections. Given the current
    economic climate with its limitations on both monetary and human
    resources the need to address the needs of collections as a
    whole is paramount; utilising available resources to maximum
    effect. Given the material diversity of photographic processes
    within collections there is the added confusion as to which
    storage materials and systems, and which environment; a common
    environment or mixed environments, should we use?

    This course will aim to pull together all available knowledge
    and address the needs of photography with a view to imparting
    clear guidelines on the choice of storage materials, systems and
    environments including suppressed temperature and relative
    humidity storage.

    vulnerable and problematic artefacts.
