Student Comments for MS104: An Introduction to Collections Preservation:
"I didn't really know what to expect because I had never taken an online class before, nor had a taken any sort of collections/preservation class. I definitely learned a lot; I now understand the overall goals and practices of collections preservation."
"I particularly liked seeing images in the PowerPoint slides. They really can add to the understanding of a topic."
"I really enjoyed the excellent course reading material. It has really helped me understand so much more about the work I do."
"I've been working as a collection manager for 10 years. I have no formal training in museum techniques …I thought this class would solidify everything I've learned. I didn't think I would learn anything new, but I did. Great course. I would recommend it to anyone starting out in the museum field."
"My experience with the MS104 online course has been exceptional, a 10! … Thank you! Thank you for such a high quality and demanding workshop!"
"I AM THE ONE WHO SHOULD THANK YOU! EUREKA! I REALLY GAINED ALOT AND REALLY ENJOYED STUDYING WITH YOU."
"It may have been an on-line course, but I feel like I've got a textbook. And one written by many different sources, two heads being better than one."
