Analysis of Temperature and Relative Humidity Data Workshop
The Getty Conservation Institute’s Managing Collection Environments Initiative (Los Angeles) and the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (Brussels) are organizing a 3-day (27-28 June + 4 July 2022) workshop focusing on the analysis of temperature and relative humidity data.
Facilitating Decision-making Through Analysis of Temperature and Relative Humidity Data
Have you ever looked at a temperature and relative humidity measurements and wondered what they can tell you and why they are important for your collection?
The Getty Conservation Institute's (GCI) Managing Collection Environments Initiative and the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA) are organizing a 3-day workshop that will help you better understand data analysis.
After this course:
- You will be able to interpret different visuals and translate this to improved collection care
- You will learn how to use different existing tools and manipulate them to generate your own interesting graphs.
- You will know how you can use this data for different collection purposes, though an overview of different case studies.
We recognize that temperature and relative humidity might not be the biggest risk for our collections, however, they do have an very significant impact on museum management and budget. This course will help you easily identify problems and choose the most adequate numerical and visuals result to answer your questions. We aim at all different types of cultural heritage institutions; from churches to purpose built museums and we look at different uses for your data; from formulating loan requirements to building requirements. This workshop combines courses and case studies with readings and exercises to give you a broad spectrum of the different types of information that temperature and relative humidity analysis can give you.
This workshop is part of the Resilient Storage Project that relies on the further support of the following partners: KU Leuven, Urban Brussels, Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles, Vlaamse Overheid, Comic Art Museum and FeliXart Museum. Sponsorship for this workshop is provided by: ICOM Belgique Wallonie-Bruxelles and ICOM Belgium-Flanders.
