"More than 30 years of continuing research into the preservation of photographic collections have led to a better understanding of the fragility of these images and the means by which to preserve them. A resource for the photographic conservator, conservation scientist, curator, as well as professional collector, this volume synthesizes both the enormous amount of research that has been completed to date and the international standards that have been established on the subject. The book opens with a description of the principal forms of deterioration that photographs may undergo. It surveys the variety of containers used to house photographs and the environmental conditions each is meant to improve. It also discusses the maintenance of photographic collections and the precautions that must be taken in exhibiting them. Special attention is given to the digital technology and innovative techniques available to manage a photographic collection and ensure its longevity."--Publisher description

Building an emergency plan : a guide for museums and other cultural institutions by Valerie Dorge( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and French and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When an emergency strikes, is your cultural institution prepared to protect the people on-site, as well as the premises and its collections? This workbook, originally published in English and now available in French, offers guidance to institutions seeking to develop their own emergency preparedness and response strategies. Divided into three parts, the book addresses the groups generally responsible for developing and implementing emergency procedures: institution directors, emergency preparedness managers, and departmental team leaders. Several chapters detail the practical aspects of communication, training, and team formation to handle the safety of staff and visitors, collections, buildings, and records. Emergencies covered include natural events such as earthquakes or floods, as well as human-caused emergencies, such as fires that occur during renovation. Examples from the Barbados Museum and Historical Society; Museo de Arte Popular Americano, Chile; Mystic Seaport Museum, Connecticut; and Seattle Art Museum show how cultural institutions have prepared for emergencies relevant to their sites, collections, and regions

20 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This two volume guide provides a comprehensive overview of the fundamental principles and guidelines for documenting cultural heritage places. It seeks to aid heritage managers and decision makers in understanding their roles and responsibilities inn this essential activity. Volume 1 (Guiding Principles) explains why heritage managers must make sure that heritage information fully integrated into all research, investigation and conservation activities. Through the discussion of basic principles, benefits and new approaches, it assists those in charge of preserving immovable cultural heritage by bringing current heritage information practices to a new level. By recording we create a reference for evaluating change and add to the understanding of a site. By documenting we guarantee that information is systematically collected and preserved for future use. By managing the information we make it available and provide a basis for sharing our knowledge and understanding. Volume 2 presents illustrated examples from around the world. Good documentation of a site allows for better understanding of the site's value. Recognizing value and significance is often the first step toward a site's eventual conservation. The information obtained through the documentation process allows conservation professionals to record current conditions, consider appropriate conservation options, plan interventions, apply treatments, and finally, measure the results of their efforts. Documentation can be a tool in resolving a conservation issue. This volume presents several illustration examples from around the world, in various stages of conservation
