Dust and dirt: strategies for prevention and management
Preservation Advisory Centre Training Day
Tuesday 11 June 2013

This training day builds an understanding of what dust is and why its management is important. It explores low-cost methods of monitoring dust and dirt and discusses methods of preventing its build-up. The day includes practical sessions on how to clean books and stack areas. It provides steps to follow when setting up a housekeeping programme and highlights what to think about if you are considering involving volunteers. The training day is led by Paul Garside (British Library), Jane Pimlott (British Library), and Caroline Bendix ACR (Independent Conservator).
