The Environmental Monitoring Program was established to assist in maintaining proper temperature and humidity levels within the Library. Maintaining recommended levels of temperature and humidity are crucial to prevent the further deterioration of paper materials, control mold outbreaks, and inhibit pest infestations.
The Environmental Monitoring Program consists of collecting data from PEM2 dataloggers, inputting and analyzing the data using Climate Notebook software, producing detailed quarterly reports, and working with Campus Facilities to address any problems.
Data is collected from 28 locations within Deering, Main, Seeley G. Mudd Library as well as the Library Storage Facility (LSF). Below is a list of the locations of environmental monitors:
