Mold is a frequent hazard in collections. In this 90-minute webinar, participants learned how to identify mold, deal safely with a mold outbreak, and how to prevent it from occurring in the first place. We also discussed how mold might affect a variety of formats in your institution, from books and paper to leather and textiles. This webinar is based on one that aired on January 17, 2013 for the Caring for Yesterday’s Treasures—Today course “Collections Care Basics: Where Do I Begin?”
