Volunteers and staff of libraries, archives, and museum, as well as
collectors of historic items, are invited to attend upcoming workshops
presented as part of the state’s Connecting to Collections project. 
The day-long workshops will take place in Baker City, Florence,
McMinnville, Medford, Pendleton, Philomath and Portland.

The first workshop, “Collections Care: Cleaning, Mending, and
Housing,” will present basic and advanced information on caring for
historical items that are found in libraries, museums and archives.
Randy Silverman, preservation librarian at the University of Utah, will
be the presenter.

The second workshop, “Disaster Response and Recovery,” will deal
with how libraries, museums, and archives can best recover from a flood,
fire, or other disaster that damages or destroys historical materials.
The presenter will be Kris Kern from the Portland State University

While the workshops are free, pre-registration is required. You can
register online at www.oregonheritage.org after Aug. 7.

The Connecting to Collections project is administered by the Oregon
Heritage Commission on behalf of its statewide partners, including the
Oregon Library Association and the Oregon State Library. The Connecting
to Collections project is funded in part by a grant from the federal
Institute of Museum and Library Services.
