Caring for Collections: an archive preservation workshop with Anne Hillam

Come and learn how to care for collections in this two-hour, introductory hands-on workshop. Participants will walk away with a solid foundation on the long-term preservation of their collections, both large and small.

Topics will include:

  • the proper handling of objects
  • storage of media-based materials
  • removing and placing books on shelving
  • how to assess the fragility/health of an object
  • if needed, how to properly support objects when in use.

Following the introduction, through a lecture and powerpoint presentation, participants will learn key concepts and terms related to preservation, such as recognizing agents of deterioration, disaster response, and environmental monitoring. Midway through the workshop we will discuss proper methods for handling and storing collections. We will utilize hands-on demonstrations as well as examples of what to do and not to do when caring for collections.

10–10:15am — Welcome and Introduction

10:15–10:45am — Preservation Concepts

10:45–1:30 am — Storage and Handling

11:30–noon—Wrap-Up & Questions

 

This workshop is for staff of small museums, libraries, or archives who are responsible for collection care—as well as individuals caring for their own collections.

This is a free workshop made possible with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Note: Masks will be required to attend the event.
