It is usually a challenge to provide an acute control of pollutants in historical buildings without interfering with the integrity of the collection and the building. In this presentation, the author will investigate the pro and con of macro pollutant controls in the room and the pro and con of the use of enclosures based on the three inter-related heritage principles: integrity, visibility and preservation. An index of priority of actions will be also proposed to insure optimum improvement [1].
