Balancing Preservation and Energy Consumption in Cultural Heritage Collections
January 25, 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. UAF Murie Building Auditorium
Cultural heritage organizations such as museums, libraries, and archives, commercial galleries, and private collectors are increasingly faced with making difficult choices between providing appropriate environmental conditions for the long-term preservation of significant artifacts and documents and paying for rising utilities costs for energy, whether for fossil fuels or renewable energy sources.
Jeremy Linden, Principal, Linden Preservation Services, Inc., has for two decades consulted on creating built environments that address sustainable building practices in structures preserving cultural heritage. His clients have included Harvard University, the Museum of History and Industry (Seattle) and Library of Congress, among many others.
