DESCRIPTION OF THE PROGRAM
What is mold? How do you identify it? What types of mold can we expect to find on heritage materials? What do we do if we find it? How can we prevent it from occurring in the future? This workshop will address these questions and other concerns that participants may have regarding mold in their collections. We will begin in the morning with a discussion of the life cycle of mold, types of mold likely to occur in libraries and museums, and what conditions contribute to mold growth in libraries and museums. In the afternoon we will explore ways to treat mold if it does occur in your collection. We will pay particular attention to the methods and equipment necessary for safeguarding the health and safety of library staff that may have to deal with mold outbreaks.
