Purchasing Environmental Monitoring Equipment and Materials to Preserve Collections

The purchase of environmental monitoring equipment and the installation of ultraviolet film on the museum's windows to protect the 8,700-item historic collection which consists of local, Scandinavian, and Asian artifacts that document the town's heritage.

As per recommendations from three conservators, purchase and install HOBO data loggers to monitor the environmental conditions in all areas of the Museum where collections items are located. Also, as per recommendations from two conservators, purchase ultraviolet radiation filter film and install on all windows in locations where there are collections items in the Museum. These steps are the continuation of efforts by the Columbia Pacific Heritage Museum to improve its collections care, exhibition and storage practices.
