A new online technical resource from the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), "Mold and Moisture Management in Buildings," contains 22 ASHRAE Journal articles and papers presented at ASHRAE IAQ conferences and ASHRAE's semi-annual meetings.

"This collection provides extensive technical background along with specific suggestions for avoiding mold- and moisture-related problems," Lew Harriman, a member of ASHRAE's technical committee on moisture management in buildings, said.

The papers and articles address mold fundamentals, moisture movement in building assemblies, dehumidification and HVAC systems, and also discussions of typical problems and solutions for both commercial and residential buildings.

The cost is $49 ($35 ASHRAE members), and it is available only via download from the Bookstore at ASHRAE.org at http://resourcecenter.ashrae.org/store/ashrae/newstore.cgi?itemid=21029&view=item&categoryid=174&categoryparent=174&page=1.
