The Intermuseum Conservation Association and the Ohio Preservation Council have developed a statewide preservation outreach initiative. Anyone who owns or is responsible for a collection will benefit from attending. This includes individuals as well as staff and volunteers of museums, libraries and archives, churches, government agencies, non-profit organizations, clubs, etc.
This program will be traveling across Ohio, and will also be available on demand, all free of charge. Topics to be covered in every session will include:
- Why should we be concerned about our collections?
- What is preservation and why is it so important?
- What's the difference between preservation and conservation?
- What kind of supplies should I be using to preserve my collections?
- How do I prepare for a possible disaster? What do I do if a disaster occurs?
- What Internet and published resources are available to help me?
- How do I pay for all of this?
