C-3 Know cyclical maintenance and conservation needs of objects or groups of objects in your Federal museum collections



For many Federal museum collections, providing stable, climate-controlled housing ensures that
the collections remain stable. For other collections, however, a stable environment is not
enough. Professional conservators may advise a more active approach requiring cyclical
maintenance, periodic examinations or other treatments to extend the life of especially fragile
objects.
