Care & Management for Archives and Works on Paper
Conservators and Archivists often work together to develop the most successful approaches to care and preservation while allowing access for research and exhibition.
Best practices, including practical policies and procedures are key to good archives management and care. This 4 week course will introduce basic professional standards and procedures for archives collections management and recognize the roles of archivists and conservators in the care of archives collections. Topics covered will include collections governance, policies, and procedural guidelines for condition assessments, handling, housing, storage, exhibition and use in research.
Care & Management for Archives and Works on Paper is a good follow on course for those who have taken the American Association for State and Local History's Basics of Archives course, though it is not required to take the Basics of Archive course first.
