Managing Environmental Monitoring

Starts:  Jun 28, 2021 9:15 AM (GB)
Ends:  Jul 1, 2021 5:00 PM (GB)

This course will review the agents that cause deterioration of museum and cultural heritage objects and consider how they impact on complex collections. We will discuss the basic interactions of materials with their surroundings and then consider the values and standards that shape environmental decisions and how we communicate our goals. You will examine a range of strategies, from technical to managerial, to understand and modify conditions to deliver acceptable levels of care for collections.

 

There is a residential option available, with accommodation available on-site at West Dean College of Arts and Conservation.
