Our 2020 series of Environmental Data Analysis webinars has been rescheduled. This series of three webinars will teach participants how to analyze and interpret meaning from environmental data, and respond to data interpretation by creating appropriate action plans. The new dates and times are as follows:

May 14, 2020 – 2:00pm - 3:00pm EDT
Setting Appropriate Parameters
June 11, 2020 – 2:00pm - 3:00pm EDT
Responding to Issues

The Institute of Museum and Library Services awarded the Image Permanence Institute $429,409 in funding to support a three-year research project designed to identify the most cost-efficient and environmentally responsible methods of preparing paper-based collection objects for transit and display while maintaining preservation standards.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to our research and business assessment activities over the past ten months including online surveys, strategic conversations and working meetings with internal and external constituents, and an extensive evaluation of IPI’s existing business and fundraising practices.
We are thrilled to introduce our new Research Scientist, Dr. Meredith Sharps. Meredith joined IPI in June after a postdoctoral fellowship at the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum Conservation Institute, where she conducted collections-based research in the microanalysis laboratory.
With the continued impact of the global pandemic and the uncertainty of how COVID-19 will progress through the remainder of 2020, IPI has decided to cancel the 2020 Vision symposium scheduled for October 14-15 in Rochester, NY.
