Do you keep track of the environment, i.e., temperature and humidity in your institution? Are you using data loggers or hygrothermographs to monitor the help you keep track of environmental changes? Do you really know what to do with the data you’re collecting? Are you doing this just because you are supposed to in order to better care for your collections, but not so sure about the overall benefit? Do you have a variety of collections materials that varying requirements for their optimal environmental conditions and not quite sure how to optimize for the overall needs of your collections? Have you thought that there are better ways to present the findings from your data to others in your institution? Would it be helpful for you to have better ways to understand or tell the story of your institution’s environment and its effect on your collections?
This webinar is a chance to look at what’s standing in the way of your organization having better environmental monitoring, and a better collection environment! We’re discussing a free software tool offered by Conserv that’s designed to help you turn your environmental data into actionable information for your organization. The software Conserv Cloud is designed to be accessible for collections of all sizes – it works with your existing data loggers, it’s cloud-based, and it doesn’t require any fancy computer set-up. The Conserv mantra is progress instead of perfection, and this webinar is a chance to learn how to move your organization forward on an important pillar of preventive conservation.
