Environmental Monitoring Kit
Any Virginia institution may rent our Environmental Monitoring Kit. It contains simple, user-friendly instruments and materials that are sturdy and and easy to read and interpret. Sites can get data immediately without a computer hookup, calibration, or downloading of data. 


Rental fee is only $40 and covers shipping of the kit to the collecting institution and back to VAM. A deposit is required to cover the cost of replacing the equipment. Download the VAM Environmental Monitoring Kit loan agreement for details. 
VAM's new Environmental Monitoring Rental Kit equipment will allow collecting institutions to monitor the following:
  • temperature
  • relative humidity
  • visible light
  • ultra-violet light
  • insect pests
  • acidity of archival materials
The equipment can monitor results in different exhibit spaces, storage areas, and any location where collections are housed. Sites may elect to rent the Kit more than once to compare data and establish a baseline picture of conditions at their collecting institution throughout the year, seasonally, or in a particular area of their facility.
To coordinate rental of the Kit or for more information, please contact Christina E. Newton, assistant director at 804.358.3173.
