Promotion and Outreach for Preservation (Online)

Presented By: LYRASIS

Description: Are you looking for ways to start new projects? Do you need support for 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.

Every archives, library, and museum has unique and valuable collections. Learn how to utilize those special treasures to generate interest and resources for both the gems and the general collections. 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 possible funding. The class will examine the value of virtual and on-site activities to increase community interest, participation, as well as 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.
