Preservation and Conservation Assessments, Surveys, and Evaluations can be incredibly helpful collections care tools – if you know how to use them! Too often cultural heritage organizations receive these useful documents only to let them sit on a shelf and gather dust. This course will help you to understand the different types of assessments you may have done on your collections, and, most importantly, how to implement the recommendations made and move these documents from a binder on the shelf into real-life applications. In this four-part series, presenters will discuss what is included in a general preservation assessment, other types of useful collections care related assessments, using an assessment for grant writing and fundraising, and creating an implementable preservation plan.
