Environmental Monitoring

ASDM gives you a way to get a better idea about the humidity and light levels in your building. As a membership benefit, ASDM offers its institutional members the opportunity to check out and use an environmental monitoring kit for 90 days at a time. The kit includes a psychrometer for checking relative humidity levels and a light meter, along with instructions for their use. Light meters can cost well over $500, more than many small museums can afford. This kit lets ASDM organzations use quality equipment at no cost. A $50 deposit is required before the equipment is sent out, and fully refunded when the equipment is returned.

In the past few years the Environmental Monitoring Kit has been used by the Dakota Discovery Museum in Mitchell, the Smith-Zimmermann Museum in Madison, and the Washington Pavilion of Arts and Science in Sioux Falls.
