“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.

protect collections on display and in storage. The second part will deal with

vulnerability) to check during/after an environmental failure or change.
