IPI’s Methodology for: Implementing Sustainable Energy-saving Strategies in collections environments

“The implementation of sustainable preservation programs in cultural institutions has often required the involvement of outside consultants throughout the process – from documentation and data-gathering through testing, implementation, and maintenance. Institutions, while interested, have been limited by the availability of grant funding or their own capacity to afford external assistance. By providing a clearly written methodology, with step-by-step processes, tips, resources, and tools, the hope is that institutions will be empowered to take greater ownership of implementing sustainable preservation practices.” (p.1-2)

“Our hope is that the methodology and resources provided here will allow institutions to implement sustainable practices and achieve optimal preservation environments on their own.” (p.1)
