The Alliance has compiled this set of exhibit conservation resources from amongst its own offerings as well as those throughout the nonprofit and museum sector.
The Alliance provides a handout from its 2013 annual meeting, which provides exhibit guidelines to help museums set goals and understand what constitutes a green exhibit. The handouts provide tools and indicators for assessing the sustainability of a project using financial, environmental and social impacts.
This wiki tool and technical resource from the American Institute for Conservation (AIC) has content created by the various AIC Specialty Groups, Networks and Committees. The guidelines focus on practical techniques that protect museum collections while on display and provides a framework for including conservation in the exhibit development and production process to ensure a preservation-responsible approach to design.
