Collections Care During Covid-19: Managing the Environment While Working Off-site

February 18, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

While management of collections environments for offsite- and infrequently accessed storage facilities has long been a challenge for preservation and facilities staff, the onset of COVID-19 and the subsequent ongoing occupancy and staffing challenges have introduced similar management issues for normally monitored and accessed collections spaces. This webinar will discuss options for distance monitoring and environmental management while key staff are offsite, including:

  • Normal datalogging practices and how to continue a monitoring program with limited access
  • The implementation of wireless datalogging and the potential use of data from building management systems (BMS) managed by facilities partners
  • Creating partnerships with staff that are onsite and the importance of physical walkthroughs
  • Understanding temperature and relative humidity risk-ranges for mixed collections, common rates of change for interior environments, and when to “panic”
  • Well-intentioned strategies that may introduce increased risk to the collection
