The cost of energy usage by museums, a significant portion of which is spent on environmental control, may not escape close scrutiny when the squeeze on resources tightens. This publication demonstrates the need for museums to strike a balance between environmental control and energy efficiency.

The Museum Environment is in two parts; Part I: intended for conservators and museum curators and describes the principles and techniques of controlling the environment so that the potentially damaging effects of light, humidity and air pollution on museum exhibits may be minimised. Part II: the author brings together and summarises information and data, hitherto widely scattered in the literature of diverse fields, which is essential to workers in conservation research. Since the timely publication of the first two editions of this book in hardback, interest in preventive conservation has continued to grow strongly making publication of this paperback edition all the more welcome. Those whose responsibility it is to care for the valuable and beautiful objects in the world's collections have become increasingly aware that it is better to prevent their deterioration, by ensuring that they are housed and displayed in the best possible environmental conditions, than to wait until restoration and repair are necessary. The changes for the second edition have been mainly concentrated in the sections on electronic hygrometry, new fluorescent lamps, buffered cases, air conditioning systems, data logging, and control within historic buildings. A new appendix, giving a summary of museum specificiations for conservation, provides a useful, quick reference.

The Museum Environment, Second Edition deals with the behavior and conservation of the various classes of museum exhibit. This book is divided into six sections that provide museum specifications for conservation. This text highlights the three contributing factors in the deterioration and decay of museum exhibits, namely light, humidity, and air pollution. Each section describes the mechanism of deterioration and the appropriate “preventive conservation . The changes in this edition from the previous include the electronic hygrometry, fluorescent lamps, buffered cases, air conditioning systems, and data logging and control in historic buildings. This book is of great value to conservation researchers and museum workers.

Environmental Management

Environmental Management

The key to the survival of museum collections is a stable indoor environment and vital to this is a well-maintained building with effective environmental services.

The key to the survival of museum collections is a stable indoor environment and vital to this is a well-maintained building with effective environmental services. Environmental Management sets out clearly the theory and practice of achieving an appropriate museum environment for both collections and people. The book emphasises the need for planning and places the environmental needs of museum collections at the forefront of the responsibilities of museum managers. May Cassar stresses the role of the building as the first line of defence against environmental instability, recognising the importance of regular environmental monitoring and control, and the division of museum spaces into critical areas housing collections and non-critical areas accommodating offices, cafes and communal spaces. Environmental Management presents a strategic approach to environmental management, in contrast to the piecemeal approach to environmental monitoring and control still practised by many museums. However, rather than providing ready solutions and rigid rules, the book introduces principles and ideas on which to base decisions about creating the appropriate environment.

Environmental Sustainability at Historic Sites and Museums

Environmental Sustainability at Historic Sites and Museums

Let this book introduce you to the topic if you’re new to it; or take you to the next level of performance if you’ve been doing this awhile.

Growing public interest in environmental sustainability is a gift to historic sites and museums. It is an invitation to use our knowledge, collections, and sites to discuss how human practices and interactions with the environment in past were – and were not – environmentally sustainable. Being green still has a great deal to do with using less energy, buying less stuff, and recycling more, but now sustainability just as important in strategic planning, interpretation and public engagement. Environmental Sustainability at Historic Sites and Museums details how to go green at every level of your organization Why is this important? Because it is no longer a choice; environmental awareness as an amenity has become climate awareness as a necessity. Seas and storms threaten historic coastal communities. Flooding increasingly threatens sites near rivers. What structural precautions, collections care changes, and insurance approaches should you take for the new normal? What self-sufficiencies must you develop? What role do you have in community responses? Let environmental sustainability change the way you operate, engage the community and fulfill your mission. Let this book introduce you to the topic if you’re new to it; or take you to the next level of performance if you’ve been doing this awhile. From one of the leading experts in the sustainability practices in museums, this book explains how engaging in sustainable practices will benefit not only the planet, but also the people you serve, your programs and even your profits. To demonstrate this, Sutton provides case studies from museums at the forefront of the green movement.

The 'cabinets of curiosity' formed by early collectors were dominated by objects from the natural world, and this emphasis continued as museums evolved in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Today, museums still store these collections of birds, mammals, fossils and shells - collections seen by many (even in the museum profession) to be outmoded and irrelevant. Yet at a time when the loss of biodiversity is seen as a major environmental issue, these collections, and the activities of curators of natural history material, have gained a new significance. Natural history museums worldwide have embraced a new philosophy with the conservation ethic at its heart. The rise of environmentalism in the 1960s, described here, generated new partners for museums; museums themselves becoming part of a wider environmental network. The author traces the impact of environmentalism on museums and the impact that it has had - and continues to have - on exhibitions, scientific research and educational programmes. Reference is made to the related topics of ecomuseums, zoos, aquaria and botanic gardens. Museum buildings and museum activities are subjected to an 'environmental audit' and policies are suggested which would make them more environmentally friendly.
