Mini-Theater: Planning Storage Renovations with Preservation Consultants (Presented by the Northeast Document Conservation Center)

A preservation consultant can add a valuable perspective to the design process by advocating for your collections. Frances will discuss two recent renovation projects she participated in as a consultant, review the design choices a preservation specialist can help inform, and give guidance on when a consultant is most useful in the process.
