New workshops in collections care and disaster response and recovery
will be offered to volunteers and staff of libraries, archives, and
museums this fall. The free day-long workshops will take place in Baker
City, Florence, McMinnville, Medford, Pendleton, Philomath and
Portland.
 
The first workshop, “Collections Care: Cleaning, Mending, and Housing,”
will present basic and advanced information on caring for historical
items that are found in libraries, museums and archives. Randy
Silverman, preservation librarian at the University of Utah, will be the
presenter.
 
The second workshop, “When #X at X! Happens: Disaster Response and
Recovery,” will deal with how libraries, museums, and archives can best
recover from a flood, fire, or other disaster that damages or destroys
historical materials. The presenter will be Kris Kern from the Portland
State University library.
 
These workshops are follow-ups to ones offered last spring by the
Connecting to Collections project and are partially funded by a grant
from the Institute of Museum Services. They include role-playing and
hands-on activities. They are coordinated by Oregon Heritage, part of
the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.
 
While the workshops are free, pre-registration is required. You can
register online at www.oregonheritage.org . The first workshop is Sept.
9. 
 
The Connecting to Collections project is administered by Oregon
Heritage, part of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department. The
Connecting to Collections project is funded in part by a grant from the
federal Institute of Museum and Library Services. For more information,
