The Regional Alliance for Preservation provides information and resources on preservation and conservation for cultural institutions and the public throughout the United States.
Presented by: LYRASIS
Description: Are you looking for ways to start new projects or take better care of your collections? Why not take something you are already doing or (would like to do) and use it to help further your preservation goals.
Everybody has unique and valuable collections—learn how to utilize your special treasures to generate interest and resources for specific items and the collections as a whole. Topics covered include how preservation outreach can work for your institution, types of outreach activities that will highlight collections care needs, and how to get started turning outreach activities into money and money-saving activities. The class will examine the value of virtual and on-site activities to increase community interest, participation, and monetary and in-kind donations. Be prepared to talk about what you are already doing and explore ways to take your efforts one step further. This class is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Division of Preservation and Access.
