MSL2100H Museum Environment - Intensive Format

Printer-friendly version

This course is an introduction to preventive conservation. As such, it focuses on: identifying and quantifying the environmental factors that affect collections; developing strategies that mitigate those factors; understanding the materials that make up a museum collection - how they degrade, react to their environment and the objects around them; and evaluating the conservation requirements for the safe exhibition and storage of museum collections.

This course will be offered in an intensive 6 week format in 2015-2016. Classes will be held six (6) Fridays from 9 to 5 pm and students must be able to attend all 6 classes.

The major class assignments will be applied, working with a partner museum. Students are required to identify and make arrangements with their partner museum in advance.
