Are you planning a remodel, new storage, or a new building and will need to move all or part of your collection? Don’t wait until the last minute. Join Instructor Lori Benson, veteran of three large scale museum collection moves, for the 4 week online course Moving Museum Collections.
This course provides an overview of how to plan and manage a move to avoid the many pitfalls. The course will help you define the scope of your project, develop a work plan and schedule, prepare a communication scheme, define proposals for vendors, choose equipment, estimate costs, identify hazards, organize staffing and establish packing techniques and standards. Whether you are moving across the hall or across town, Moving Museum Collections will provide a guide for a successful move.
