In this two day workshop, participants will learn how to recognize and identify organisms that are detrimental to the longevity of collections. Participants will also learn how to decide how to respond to the discovery of pests from a suite of options. There will also be an opportunity to learn how to assess cultural property for pest risks and propose an IPM plan to mitigate them.
This workshop is beneficial for staff and volunteers of cultural facilities who are responsible for the physical integrity, research, exhibition and other utility values of collections of cultural property, all of which are harmed by pest activity.
This workshop is an elective course for the Museum Studies Certificate Program. For more information about this program, please contact Sarah Wade, Professional Development Coordinator via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (709) 722 9034.
