Disaster Plan Research and Writing

Every museum needs to be prepared for fires, floods, chemical spills, tornadoes, hurricanes and other disasters. But surveys show 80 percent lack trained staff, emergency-preparedness plans for their collections, or both. Disaster Plan Research and Writing begins with the creation of disaster-preparedness teams, the importance of ongoing planning, employee safety, board participation and insurance. Participants will learn everything they need to draft their own disaster-preparedness plans. They also will be required to incorporate colleagues in team-building exercises.

Technical Bulletins

The Canadian Conservation Institute (CCI) has published more than 30 Technical Bulletins to assist heritage professionals and institutions in the care and preservation of their objects and collections. Since these Bulletins contain useful and relevant information for conservation practices, research or reference, we are pleased to provide a majority of them on our website for free to reach a wider audience. Please note that some Technical Bulletins have been retired and are no longer available due to outdated content.
CCI continues to publish Technical Bulletins for print publication and will make new Bulletins available for purchase as print copies for the first five years after publication. Following that time, they will be added to this online resource as free content. The Technical Bulletins are considered archived material only because they are not subject to the Government of Canada.

Integrated Pest Management Workshop

This workshop will give guidance on how to deal with insect pest problems likely to be encountered in museums, collections, archives and historic houses. It will focus on insects and the damage they cause, together with new information on the detection, monitoring and trapping of pests. The emphasis is on pest-prevention as the key to successful integrated pest management, but this
workshop will also evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of physical and chemical control measures. Practical sessions will include: identification of insect damage and insect pests; carrying out a survey to examine factors which encourage pests; evaluating issues relating to treatment of objects using freezing, heating and anoxia.
