Connecting to Collections

Heritage Preservation has announce that registration is open for this Fall’s series of Webinars, the latest installment in the Connecting to Collections initiative.  They are working with the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and the American Association for State and Local History (AASLH) in developing the series.

These highly interactive webinars are intended to connect participants with experts and colleagues to discuss issues of common concern.  The series has a dual focus:  four webinars will help participants learn how to conduct outreach to the media, the public, and funders on behalf of collections, and two webinars will help participants derive maximum benefit from the Connecting to Collections Bookshelf.   Click here to view the schedule, read more about the content, submit questions, or register.

For those that have already been part of Connecting to Collections, this webinar is the next step in expanding your participation.  If you have not been part of the initiative to date, this is the perfect opportunity to become part of the community.  Either way, participants are sure to find a lot of information helpful to them and their institution’s collections.  Participants may sign up for the entire series or select only the sessions of most interest.
These six webinars are free of charge to staff of museums, libraries, and archives who seek to enhance collections care at their institutions.
