Workshops that enable libraries, archives and museums in central Oregon
to care for their collections better, including preparing for disasters,
will take place April 29 – 30 in Bend.
“These training sessions will enable the volunteers and staff of
these organizations to give better care and protection for the important
records and treasures they,” said project director Kyle Jansson.
People may attend one or both days of training. Pre-registration is
required for these free workshops.
The collections care workshop on April 29 will cover the topics of
collection policy, preservation planning, collections assessments,
environmental controls, collections problem solving, and solving
conundrums through networking.
The emergency preparedness workshop on April 30 includes connecting
with emergency responders, disaster planning, identifying threats and
resources, collections prioritization, and involving the public in
disaster preparedness,
The workshops will include lectures, hands-on activities, discussions,
guest presentations, and small-group work. Designed for archives,
libraries and museums, they will be relevant to people with little
collections experience, as well to those with significant experience.

The workshops are funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and

the Oregon Library Association and the Oregon State Library, led by the
Oregon Heritage Commission.
