Sustainable Preservation Practices Series II

IPI Sustainable Preservation Practices WorkshopIt’s not too late to sign up for one of the Sustainable Preservation Practices for Managing Storage Environments—Series II workshops presented by IPI and funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. This popular series is designed to enable collections care and facilities staff in cultural institutions to work together to achieve an optimal preservation environment—one that combines the best preservation of collections with the least possible consumption of energy, and is sustainable over time. These workshops are offered free-of-charge.


Series II workshops will provide instruction and guidance based on current research and field practice. Workshop sites include:

o   The Denver Art Museum, Denver, Colorado – August 15 – 16, 2012

o   Folger Shakespeare Library, Washington DC – September 12 – 13, 2012

o   Vizcaya Art Museum and Gardens, Miami, Florida – October 16 – 17, 2012

o   Newberry Library, Chicago, Illinois – November 14 – 15, 2012


Participants will receive two full days of practical, understandable information and a copy of IPI's Sustainable Preservation Practices guidebook. Last year's series was extremely popular and participants rated the information they received very highly. Register for workshops on the project website at
