    Getting Started with Environmental Monitoring, Sep. 12, 2022

    Monday, September 12, 2022
    12:00 PM – 1:00 PM PDT
    Free Virtual Workshop

    Presented by the Los Angeles Preservation Network and Conserv. What is environmental monitoring? Why do we do it? What types of tools are useful for monitoring temperature, relative humidity, and light? Using case studies from conservators on Conserv's staff, we will discuss these questions, and give a brief introduction to Conserv's wireless data loggers and free environmental monitoring/pest management software designed specifically for cultural heritage collections.
