Mold and Collections

Welcome to our LibGuide section on mold and its effects on cultural heritage collections. Below are resources that explain what mold is (and isn't), how it is harmful to cultural collections, and how we in preservation and conservation combat mold to prevent outbreaks and damage in collections.

If you have a moldy collection item or think there may be an outbreak in your library space, please call the Preservation Emergency Phone at 203-530-5414.
