These guidelines are intended to address the concerns of managers and designers of museums, galleries, libraries and archives over indoor air quality. These concerns are often due to ignorance of the extent to which urban pollution is a problem to collections in buildings. While science is still mapping out the full extent of this problem and its impact on heritage materials, this publication based on sound scientific building research is a pragmatic decisionmaking guide to dealing with pollution in buildings now. The information is presented in different forms: in boxes and tables, and as text, graphs and illustrations. This should enable a range of readers to tackle issues of varying complexity. Pollution as any other environmental problem is a shared responsibility. The research, carried out by a team of university researchers, industry and end-users, has produced a publication that will be of use to building designers, building services engineers and heritage managers. If you find these guidelines useful, please let others – and us – know about it. You will find contact details on the back cover. The wider this information is disseminated, the greater will be its benefit.
