Politics, Pests and Podcasts ARCS Update Vol 3 | Update 23November 6, 2018 | ARCS News
When governmental budgetary constraints prohibited proper maintenance of the facilities in Brazil's national museum in Rio de Janeiro, politics collided with collections management in a very real way to disastrous effect. In tonight’s #ARCSchat, we'll discuss this precarious intersection, identify the problems, and discuss ways to manage our situations so that more disasters can be avoided. Join us at 8 PM ET on Twitter.
Registration Extended Until Nov. 7th for Integrated Pest Management for Cultural Institutions
Integrated Pest Management Plans are an integral, and oftentimes overlooked, core collection
policy. The Association of Registrars and Collections Specialists (ARCS) and the Conservation
Center for Art & Historic Artifacts (CCAHA) are pleased to offer a day and a half conference of presentations and practical exercises, where speakers will discuss the elements of an integrated pest management plan, present tools for identifying common pests and the best monitoring strategies, introduce types of treatments appropriate for collections objects, and summarize common hazards staff may come in contact with when dealing with pests in their collection.
November 14 – 15, 2018
Michael C. Carlos Museum
