Additional teaching resources

We would like to give you access to the GCI/CN 2006 assessment which gives our findings and initial recommendations to the museum (refer to the column on the right).

As mentioned before, much of the data in the case study is in a raw format. It is up to the teacher's discretion to make processed data available to the students. For this purpose, the processed data is made available on the right hand side. In addition we have made available the climate assessment and the condition assessment component of the GCI/ICN research, as well as a published joint article on visitor impact (Museum Microclimates, The National Museum of Denmark, Copenhagen 2007). This article and the link to its online publication are included in the bibliographic resources on the case study web site.
