Place:

presented by the Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts

ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Libraries and archives are challenged to seek innovative yet practical ways to maximize use of storage areas, enhance current facilities, efficiently utilize resources, and incorporate technology into storage solutions. Whether renovating or building a new space, institutions must address sustainability, while balancing access needs and collections care.

In this two-day conference experts in design, space planning, environmental control, and conservation will present strategies and practical approaches to caring for diverse collections. Sessions will include case studies demonstrating how libraries and archives of various sizes have implemented storage initiatives.

This conference is intended for staff involved in collections care, planning, and management for library and archival collections, including directors and administrators, collections managers, curators, librarians, and archivists. Sessions will include:

* Essentials of managing library collections storage
* Allocating resources and funding
* Space planning
* Environmental considerations
* Special collections within public libraries
* Library storage within museums
* Storing non-paper artifacts in a library or archive
* Retrofitting less than ideal spaces
* Cold storage
* Moving collections
