This course is an introduction to preventive conservation. As such, it focuses on: identifying and quantifying the environmental factors that affect collections; developing strategies that mitigate those factors; understanding the materials that make up a museum collection - how they degrade, react to their environment and the artifacts around them; and evaluating the conservation requirements for the safe exhibition and storage of museum collections.
