      Museums, libraries, archives, and other institutions caring for cultural collections are frequently looking for ways to maximize the use of their storage areas, improve upon current facilities, and perhaps plan for new storage locations. 


      Participants in this two-day conference will hear experts in the field of design, space planning, and environmental control and modification speak about practical methods and applications to improve and maximize storage spaces for cultural collections.  Sessions will include case studies that demonstrate how institutions of various sizes have implemented storage initiatives.


      This conference is intended for staff involved in collections care, planning, and management, including directors and administrators, collections managers, curators, preparators, registrars, librarians and archivists; as well as facilities managers, architects, and space planners working with cultural institutions. The program will address storage planning needs for institutions of all sizes.


      Sessions will include:



      •             The essentials of collections storage

      •             Allocating resources and funding for collections storage projects

      •             Space planning

      •             Environmental considerations

      •             Understanding HVAC systems

      •             Factors for selection in off-site storage

      •             Retrofitting less than ideal storage spaces

      •             Visible storage

      •             Moving collections



      Registration Fees:            $225 for CCAHA and MACC members, $250 for non-members
