When evaluating a collection space environment, existing or in the design phase, one of the primary questions to address is: what is the dew point? Dew point is a critical component of a collection space environment. If the dew point is too high or too low, it will contribute to collection damage. For example, excessively high dew points may lead to mold in a space. Understanding the criticality of dew point, what it is, why it matters, and how we can try to control it is important not only for the longevity of collections but for understanding the collection environment as a whole. This webinar will aide in the understanding of what dew point is, and why dew point is so critical in the preservation of collection materials.
