IPM Working Group Meeting 2015
Sponsored and hosted by the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum Conservation Institute, Washington D.C.
Between March 18th and March 20th, 2015, museum professionals with a strong interest in integrated pest management gathered once again to discuss dissemination of IPM knowledge to the greater museum community through the MuseumPests.net website. This year’s meeting began with a day devoted to tours of the Smithsonian facilities and talks presented by the founders of the IPM-WG.
The two final days of the meeting focused on updating and adding to the breadth of information available on the MuseumPests.net website. Additional, informal presentations by members of the working group provided interesting breaks from the work. The outcome of the meeting included additional pest fact sheets, new content throughout the site, a general tidying up, and a consensus to continue the work begun in 2005. For details on what was covered at the meeting please read the Day 1 post and the Days 2 & 3 post.
