ABCs of Collections Management workshop – March 18
How do we create a collections policy? How do we document donations of artifacts and what should you say – and not say – and do for your donors? We have bugs and rodents; what do we do? What are agents of deterioration? How do we number artifacts? What forms should my museum develop to ensure we comply with collections’ legal issues?
If you have ever asked any of these questions, the ABCs of Collections Management is the perfect workshop for you. You’ll spend a day with collections experts, who will present invaluable information about collections policies and collections management; handling and moving artifacts; agents of deterioration; good housekeeping; displaying and sorting collections; and much more. Have all your questions answered!
The workshop will be led by Megan McAdow of Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum at SVSU.
The workshop will take place on March 18 in the new location of the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History in the new Biological Sciences Building next door to the old museum.
The workshop is sponsored by the Michigan Museums Association.
Registration is available through March 10. Space is limited.
Cost includes lunch and materials.
