Temperature, humidity, and light can all be a threat to heritage collections if they are not monitored and regulated. Tools like dataloggers and light meters can help those managing heritage collections get an idea of the conditions where collections are stored or exhibited. Data collected can help you prioritize decisions with collections and that data can also support grant applications for improving the environment of the collection area.

You can now borrow dataloggers (for monitoring humidity and temperature), light meters, and Past Perfect Software training sets through Oregon Heritage MentorCorps for FREE!

Check out the list of MentorCorps Partner organizations below and directly contact the Partner in your region to get information on borrowing equipment.
