Setting appropriate levels for your collection is fundamental to improving your collection environment over time. We make it easy to set different levels for each of your unique spaces.
Conserv cloud is a free, cloud-based environmental monitoring tool. You can create an account at https://app.conserv.io.
From a preservation standpoint, it’s good practice to ensure that your spaces stay within certain parameters (not too humid, not too dry, not too many fluctuations). Of course a lot of these factors depend on what collection materials you’re trying to preserve, where you are in the world, and what your building is capable of doing.
Conserv Cloud allows you to define “levels,” which are our environmental parameters or as we like to call them, “goal posts,” for where you’d ideally like the environment to be.
If you have areas in your collection that are more sensitive than others, you may not want their level profiles to be the same as your less-sensitive areas. With Conserv Cloud, you can create as many level profiles as you need and assign them to each space as necessary for your collection. Check it out at http://app.conserv.io/levels
To create a new level profile
Click the Levels icon in the left navigation panel. This will take you to the levels page, where you can create/edit your level profiles.
If it's your first time visiting this page, you'll notice there is a "Conserv Default" profile, which shows our recommendations pulled from professional sources. You can edit this profile if you'd like, or you can create a new one.
To edit the Conserv Default level profile
Simply click the profile name. The editing drawer will appear from the right side of the page, and you can edit the level profile as you'd like. Be aware that this level profile is automatically assigned to all of your locations and spaces until you change them!
To create a new level profile
Click the blue "Add Level Profile" button in the bottom left of the page, and you'll be shown a list of templates to choose from. There are five pre-made templates listed here that were created based on expert recommendations: Sustainable Control, Tight Control, Cool Storage, Cold Storage, and the Conserv Default.
Once you've selected your preferred template, the new level drawer will appear on the right side of the page. You'll be asked to name your new profile, give it a description, and then set all of your ranges to your desired levels.
To assign level profiles to spaces or locations
You'll need to first head into your "Sensors" page by clicking the top icon in your left navigation panel.
Then, find the space or location to which you want to assign the level profile. Click the name of that space or location, and use the dropdown menu in the editing drawer to pick the level profile you'd like to assign.
To view your Level Profile History
Click the name of any level profile, and the level editing drawer will appear on the right side of the page. At the top, you'll see a tab that says "History." Click that tab, and you'll be shown a complete history of all the updates that have been made to that level profile.
