UV Monitors for Museums
October 14 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM MDT
Museum curators and conservators are responsible for preserving the tangible objects of our history and heritage against environmental damage, pests, and handling. Light is an environmental hazard that’s easy to overlook and is one of the leading causes of damage to museum collections. Ultraviolet light is particularly challenging to manage, as it’s difficult to even approximately assess UV exposure without specialized tools. UV causes irreversible damage to many materials, especially textiles, pigments, and plastics, requiring pre-emptive environmental mitigation. Developing easy, reusable, and inexpensive UV monitoring tools fills a key gap in enabling informed decisions on the preservation, display, and loans of sensitive artifacts.
