LYRASIS is pleased to announce the availability of a new, self-paced, 70-minute class which provides information on new approaches to environmental control for libraries, archives, and other cultural heritage institutions.

Entitled “The Elusive Preservation-Based Environment,” this workshop is delivered from an architectural and engineering viewpoint by Neal Rusnov, Project Technical Director for the IMLS-funded research project, “The Pennsylvania Study: Research into Optimal Environmental Conditions for Paper-Based Collections in Pennsylvania.”

The free session covers important findings from the project, with an emphasis on discussing methods which institutions can use to improve the temperature, humidity, light, pollutant and other environmental levels under which their collections are stored.
