Providing collection care, preservation and conservation treatment services to collectors and collecting institutions.
Online Museum Classes
Disaster planning is overwhelming. Where do you start? Talk to Terri about how to get going. Use her checklist to determine your level of preparedness. What do you already have in place? Are you somewhat prepared? What can you do next? Help clarify your current state of readiness and develop future steps to improve it.
Participants in Collection Protection will read literature and participate in two one-hour chats to discuss their institutions disaster preparedness. Each student should read course materials and prepare questions or comments to share with the other students in the chat. This is a mini-course and takes no more than 10 hours of a student's time.
To reserve a spot in the course, please pay at http://www.collectioncare.org/tas/tas.html If you have trouble please contact Helen Alten at firstname.lastname@example.org
