Mold is the common term used to describe a variety of microorganisms, including fungi, algae, rusts, yeasts, and bacteria. These microorganisms produce irregular stains that can permanently damage an object. Since mold is one of the greatest risks to library collections, library staff must be able to recognize the signs of these problems and be prepared to take preventive actions.  Learn about the hazards of mold and options for preventing and controlling it from a recognized expert on biohazards in cultural institutions.

Topics will include

o  What is mold?
o  General classifications of mold
o  Molds specific to indoor environments
o  A day in the life of mold
o  Criteria and parameters for mold development
o  Xerophyllic vs. hydrophyllic molds
o  HVAC systems and their potential problems
o  Disaster preparedness
o  Practical control and prevention of mold blooms.
Leading the workshop is Thomas A. Parker, Ph.D., a recognized expert on biohazards in cultural institutions. To view his Web site, point your
