"Managing Mold" and "Integrated Pest Management"
Thursday, March 8
Harvard librarians and curators responsible for environmental conditions in collection areas are invited to attend a two-part program about managing two of the most common threats to library, archives, and museum collections. The program presenter will be Tom Parker, PhD and entomologist, the president of Pest Control Services, Inc., in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. Parker advises hundreds of museums, libraries, and archives about managing pest problems and is a technical expert witness in legal cases concerning pests and pesticides. The morning session will cover the management of mold outbreaks, while the afternoon session will be devoted to integrated pest management (IPM), a system for controlling insects and vermin without pesticides.
Staff members can choose to attend one or both sessions. Registration is required: please contact Barbara Movius in the Weissman Preservation Center at 5-8596 or email@example.com.
