ABCs of Collections Management 
Sunday, June 11

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 Nancy Bryk of the Eastern Michigan University Historic Preservation Program and Angela Riedel from the Michigan Women's Historical Center and Hall of Fame.

Cost includes coffee in the morning, lunch and materials.
