President Jerry Podany has provided an edited transcript of the recent roundtable held on 13 May, 2010 Milwaukee Wisconsin, USA. The transcript is available on the IIC website in the dialogues section along with previous rountable discussion transcripts.
Given the looming energy crisis, the global economic downturn, and the rising awareness of green technology equating to good stewardship of our natural resources, responsible and efficient environmental control has become essential.
For this roundtable the IIC was pleased to collaborate with the AIC and bring together experts and over 600 conservators, scientists and collections care professionals to explore environmental guidelines, advances in environmental research, and the way forward to solve the Plus/Minus Dilemma in collections, archives and libraries.
