Mold Prevention & Remediation Webinar

Association for  Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS) is sponsoring Mold Prevention & Remediation webinar on Thursday, May 13, 2010, 1 p.m.  There is no cost but one must register.

Learn about the basic types of mold, and the environmental conditions that promote mold growth in the home and library collections. Prevention as well as remediation should mold growth occur will be covered. This is geared to participants with little experience, but with lots of questions and concerns.

As part of Preservation Week 2010, this webinar is presented by Michele Brown, book conservator at Cornell University since 1995. She received a B.A. in English from Fordham University and a Certificate in Hand Bookbinding and Restoration from the Camberwell School of Art and Crafts in 1977. She is enrolled in the distance learning MLIS program at the University of Alabama, and is scheduled to receive that degree in August 2010. She has conducted numerous workshops around New York State in disaster-planning, care and handling, and mold prevention and remediation. In addition, she teaches bookbinding classes, conducts collection surveys, and maintains a small private practice.

This webinar is sponsored by The Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS) and is a live webinar for the general public.
