Full text not available from this repository.


The key to the survival of museum collections is a stable indoor environment; vital to this a well-maintained building with effective environmental services. "Environmental Management" clearly sets out the theory and practice of achieving an ideal museum environment for both collections and people. May Cassar emphasizes the need for planning and places the environmental needs of museum managers. She stresses the role of the building as the first line of defense against environmental monitoring and control, and the division of museum spaces into critical areas housing collections and non-critical areas accommodating offices, cafes and communal spaces. "Environmental Management" presents a strategic approach to environmental management in contrast to the piecemeal approach to environmental monitoring and control still practised by many museums. However, rather than providing ready solutions and rigid rules, the book introduces principles and ideas on which to base decisions about creating the ideal environment.
