What Lurks Within: Identifying Hazards within Your Collections Webinar 3 in Risk Evaluation Online Course

Damage to collections is very often the result of problems with an institution’s building, systems, and/or procedures; mold and pests come to mind.

But internal hazards can also be present in old treatments (arsenic, DDT), paints and solvents stored in the basement, and radioactive or wet-specimen collections.

This session identified typical safety issues and threats to collections in cultural heritage institutions.
