    Partner Event: Getty Conservation Institute Virtual Lounge - Collections Environments (Pre-Registration Required)

    Attend
    Overview

    To access this program, you must receive a confirmation email from the Getty Conservation Institute and use that link to access the session. You won’t be able to access the session through this meeting portal.

    Too hot? Too cold? Too dry? Too humid? Is there a perfect balance? Those responsible for the care of collections in museums and other institutions, such as libraries and archives, are keenly aware of the impact of physical and ambient environments on a collection’s long-term preservation. Museum directors and other professional searching for pragmatic and sustainable strategies for creating safe collection environments, are now looking to the conservation field for guidance. Join Michal and Cecila for a conversation about managing collections environments. This will be an opportunity to hear about some of the ongoing research at the GCI, exchange ideas on related activities in your own institutions, and ask questions. Join us!

    What is the Virtual Lounge?

    Join a Getty Conservation Institute host for a coffee break or happy hour (depending on your time zone) in the Virtual Lounge, every Wednesday during the conference for an informal conversation focused on a different theme.  There will be a limited number of participants so that everyone will have a chance to engage in a relaxed environment and meet some new colleagues.
