Collections care is often sacrificed in difficult economic times but there are still ways to maintain proper care of collections with limited funding.

This leaflet provides helpful, cost-effective solutions to collections care.

Lisa Mibach addresses concerns that relate to facilities, environmental control, including microclimate and humidity, storage materials, monitoring the collections’ environment, handling, pests, and lighting. Emergency preparedness is also an important topic covered.

Mibach provides recommendations to implement that the entire staff can carry out to create a more hospitable environment for collections.
