Abstract: The work with the title " The library Friedrich II. in the new palace in potsdam, damage, causes and requirements of the conservation treatment "argues intensively with the analysis of the room climate, as damage factor for the deformed wooden rear panel of the library cabinets. Data acquisitions are evaluated to the relative humidity and temperature changes of the library area, external climate, by comparison areas, as well as from the inside of the library cabinets. They are brought to the construction way of the rear panel in connection with the material properties by wood as well as structural changes of the surrounding field. The special influence of the installed heating system in the lower cellar areas of the new palace pushes itself to the fore. It can be constituted in the context of an outlined climatic biography as main cause of the damage. In the following possibilities for handling the damage of an uneven rear panel are shown. On the one hand the conservation environment is shown and on the other hand procedures of restoration for outlines of straightening the individual board segments to lead. Here it is amplifying a particularly procedure that raise the material dampness of the wood and made a redeformation possible. At the end the special realizations for the room climate of the library are regarded critically and supplemented by an error consideration.
