Basic Collections Care

Presented by Teresa Myers, Teresa Myers Conservation Services

If you have questions about storage or collections care at your institution, 
are wondering how to begin the task of organizing and archiving your 
institution’s collections, or are wanting to learn the best practice for 
handling documents and artifacts, then this workshop is the perfect place to 
start. This one-day professional development opportunity will create a 
familiarity with basic collections care through the accessions process. 
Topics will include: basic artifact condition assessment and handling; 
application of accession numbers; basic artifact housing; and the importance 
of record-keeping.  The day will include a tour of the Camden Public Library 
and Walsh History Center. Morning coffee and a box lunch are included with 
registration.
