Does the act of freezing kill mold? The answer is more complicated than just placing that moldy book in the freezer. So what else is involved when it comes to preventing and getting rid of mold? In this webinar, you will learn about how mold thrives, how to prevent mold in your collections, and what to do if you discover a mold outbreak in your collections.
