Best Practice for Using the IPI Preservation Metrics to Assess Risk in Organic Collections, Part II: Mechanical Damage

This webinar will discuss: 1) the origins of the IPI % Equilibrium Moisture Content and % Dimensional Change metrics, 2) how to apply these metrics in practice to assess the risk of mechanical damage to organic materials posed by different environmental conditions, and 3) highlight their limitations to ensure they are appropriately used for collection management.
