The appropriate selection of materials for furnishing and display cases is an important factor of preventive conservation. Decisions must be based on conservation and aesthetic criteria. Often museum staff is at a loss how to deal with these complex issues. There is great uncertainty in choosing the correct approach and what possibilities are available. Extensive investigation is usually not possible due to tight budgets.
A two-year project studied material emissions and air quality within museum display cases. Main results, which are also included in the author´s PhD thesis ("Airborne pollutants in museum showcases"), are summarized in the present paper that gives also some reflections for future research.
