Environment: Effective monitoring and management
Jane Henderson
24 April 2015
Location: The British Library, London
Avoiding a ‘one size fits all’ approach to environmental parameters, this training day helps you to understand the vulnerabilities and tolerances of your collections and then shows how to set realistic and achievable targets that are appropriate to the materials in your care and the resources available to you. At the end of the day you will be in a strong position to take cost-effective decisions and prioritise actions for maintaining a sustainable environment. The training day is aimed at people with responsibility for the care of library and archive collections, and is led by Jane Henderson, Senior Lecturer in Conservation at Cardiff University.

Disaster response and salvage
Emma Dadson
28 April 2015
Location: The British Library, London
This intensive course focuses on preparing for disaster response and salvage. The course uses experience of responding to real incidents to demonstrate how planning can minimise the impact of emergencies in libraries and archives as well as outlining the practical steps to take when responding to situations. With reference to case studies, the course includes strategies for dealing with damage, an emergency decision-making exercise and a major incident desktop scenario. By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
  • Identify the key issues that a disaster plan needs to address
  • Give examples of the decisions to be made when responding to an incident
  • Source salvage equipment to build a disaster kit

Previous attendees commented that they had learnt ‘how much there is to think about when dealing with a disaster and how to prioritise actions’, 'the importance of preparedness, tips for emergency kits and for small scale incidents, and how to assess what we can cope with ourselves and when to call in help'. 

The day is led by Harwell Document Restoration Services.
Course fee: £128
