Managing Collection Environments (MCE) is a multiyear initiative that addresses a number of compelling research questions and practical issues pertaining to the control and management of collection environments in museums, libraries, archives, and other repositories. The initiative combines scientific investigation with fieldwork that tests and refines practical solutions that address sustainability concerns. Educational activities ranging from short courses to expert meetings, and information dissemination through print and electronic publications, support and extend the research activities. Throughout all phases of the project, the GCI will work in coordination and cooperation with other international entities actively engaged in this area. Read More
