Confronting contemporary issues in museum practice, this collection provides a practical guide to all aspects of collections care.

Contributors cover a wide range of issues including:

  •  conservation practice
  • the monitoring and control of light
  •  relative humidity and atmospheric pollution
  •  packing, handling and transportation of collections
  •  storage and access to collections
  •  biological infestation
  •  disaster planning.

Including material and sources that have, up until now, not easily been available, students of museum studies and proffessionals within the industry now have this invaluable aid to their work.
