New Book – Climate for Collections: Standards and Uncertainties

Just arrived in the Chantry Library:

Climate for Collections: Standards and Uncertainties (Postprints of the Munich Climate Conference 7-9 November 2012) edited by Jonathan Ashley-Smith, Andreas Burmester and Melanie Eibl, Archetype Publications Ltd., London, 2013, 452pp. ISBN: 978-1-909492-00-4

The debate about environmental standards for museum collections has by no means been resolved. Climate change, ever increasing energy bills, the complexity of air-conditioning systems, the feasibility of alternative climate control strategies and the real effects of inappropriate indoor environments on collections pose major questions for conservation professionals.

The papers in this volume , given at a major international conference, held at the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich from 7 to 9 November 2012 on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Doerner Institut, investigate what is known and what is not known about suitable environmental conditions for cultural heritage collections, presenting the most significant recent research on the subject.
