Practices for Managing Storage Environments

Did you attend one of the IPI Sustainable Preservation Practices Workshops and want follow-up information? Did you miss a workshop but still want to take advantage of the series? The schedule of project webinars is now available. This is a series of free on-line presentations, five regional and four topical, focused on the practical application of sustainable practices in collecting institutions. Designed for collections care and facilities staff, each webinar is 90 minutes long and requires only a computer and an internet connection. Our goal is to enable staff in cultural institutions to avoid risks to collections while they support sustainability efforts and pursue opportunities for energy cost reduction. Anyone can participate in any or all of the follow presentations:
