Maintaining and managing a preservation environment for collections storage is difficult, expensive, and consumes large amounts of energy. Based on research conducted at Image Permanence Institute (IPI) and other research institutions, IPI has developed strategies for a dynamic and sustainable approach to managing storage environments. This approach will reduce your carbon footprint and energy bill while still providing a proper preservation environment for collections. This presentation will discuss IPI research exploring how collections respond to changes in temperature and relative humidity and will present strategies for a dynamic approach to preservation based on our research.
