Environmental monitoring equipment loans

The Canadian Conservation Institute lends instruments to museums and galleries to help them monitor four important environmental factors: relative humidity, temperature, lighting, and ultraviolet radiation. See the Environmental monitoring equipment loans program for additional information. You can also view the Canadian Conservation Institute (CCI) Note Environmental monitoring kit to learn how to borrow monitoring equipment (this is only available within Canada).

Who can apply?

Our primary clients include museums, archives, libraries and historic sites, whose principal role is to acquire, conserve, communicate, exhibit (for purposes of study, education and enjoyment) and conduct research on permanent heritage collections that are accessible to the Canadian public. The majority of expert services provided on-site at CCI are provided to these clients without cost. CCI also delivers expert services and training to public authorities and other organizations in Canada that are responsible for heritage objects or collections, on the basis of partial or full cost recovery.
