“When Less is All You Got! Budget-conscious solutions to protect collections
 on display and in storage”

April 21, 2015, 2:00 – 3:30, EDT, with Ernest Conrad and Lisa Mibach.

    The first part of the webinar will illustrate the diagnostic effects of the
 lack of environmental controls, and will discuss budget-conscious solutions to
 protect collections on display and in storage. The second part will deal with
 proper storage and display conditions so that objects can weather minor
 disruptions. If you don’t have ideal storage and display conditions, you
 need to have regularly updated priority lists of objects (in order of
 vulnerability) to check during/after an environmental failure or change.

         Connecting to Collections Care is sponsored by the Foundation of the American
 Institute for Conservation with funding from the Institute of Museum and
 Library Services.
