Workshops that enable libraries, archives and museums in eastern Oregon
to care for their collections better, including preparing for disasters,
will take place May 14 – 15 in Pendleton and May 16 – 17 in Astoria.
“These training sessions will enable the volunteers and staff of these
organizations to give better care and protection for the important
records and treasures they,” said project director Kyle Jansson.
People may attend one or both days of training. Pre-registration is
required for these free workshops.
The collections care workshop will cover the topics of collection
policy, preservation planning, collections assessments, environmental
controls, collections problem solving, and solving conundrums through
networking. This workshop will take place on May 14 in Pendleton and May
16 in Astoria.
The emergency preparedness workshop includes connecting with emergency
responders, disaster planning, identifying threats and resources,
collections prioritization, and involving the public in disaster
preparedness. This workshop will take place on May 15 in Pendleton and
May 17 in Astoria.
The workshops will include lectures, hands-on activities, discussions,
guest presentations, and small-group work. Designed for archives,
libraries and museums, they will be relevant to people with little
collections experience, as well to those with significant experience.
