Preservation Best Practices: Planning and Prioritizing: Tools for Success

Course Objectives:

Presenter: Laura Hortz Stanton

The Series: This series of four webinars will provide participants with an overview of the preservation standards for the many aspects of collections care, will give benchmarks for measuring and improving preservation within an organization, and give guidelines for establishing a preservation program.

This Webinar: Providing access to collections for patrons and visitors is fundamental to the work of librarians, archivists, and collections managers. However, if access is not thoughtfully approached it can be detrimental to collections preservation. In the third in the series, attendees will learn tips for providing effective storage, handling, and exhibition strategies that marry preservation and access.

Intended Audience: This webinar series will be of interest to librarians, archivists, collections managers, curators, and other staff members involved in collections care who must manage a variety of tasks, including implementation of collections management plans and policies, management of environmental controls and storage conditions, and provision for safe use and exhibition of collections.
