There is no question that the prevention of mold growth is much easier when the library environment is controlled, but the technology for such control is expensive to install and maintain. Modification of the environment though less expensive, is not without cost. Care of collections is as important as acquisition and organization, and should be budgeted by every library and archive. Although there are no panaceas, there are a number of possibilities for environmental modification that will enable institutions to reduce likelyhood of mold damage to collections.
