Sustainable Preservation Practices for Managing Storage Environments

Five regional workshops and nine webinars presented by the Image Permanence Institute on managing environmental conditions for humanities collections in sustainable ways for staff members of museums, libraries, and archives. Participants would explore strategies for reducing energy costs and consumption in cultural repositories without sacrificing the preservation quality of collection environments.

A third round of the Sustainable Preservation Practices for Managing Storage Environments series will allow IPI the opportunity to provide information about defining and achieving an optimal and sustainable preservation environment to hundreds more institutions around the country. Our goal is to provide up-to-date information on preservation research along with the tools and strategies that will enable staff in collecting institutions to make informed, strategic decisions regarding sustainability that result in responsible collections care, energy cost savings, and carbon footprint reduction. The concepts and processes to be presented are based on years of preservation research and field experience with energy saving strategies and environmental management methods.
