Environmental Standards in Loan Agreements
In this episode of ARCSChat—a podcast of the Association of Registrars and Collections Specialists—GCI's Joel Taylor and graduate intern Caitlin Spangler-Bickell join ARCSChat hosts John Robinette, Robin Bauer Kilgo, and Amanda Robinson to talk about the tight environmental standards that we have been retaining in our loan contracts and why it might be time to let them go.
Research informing this discussion was undertaken as part of GCI's Managing Collection Environments Initiative, which is studying practical issues pertaining to the control and management of collection environments in museums, libraries, archives, and other repositories.
