Volunteers and staff of libraries, archives, and museum, as well as
collectors of historic items, are invited to attend upcoming workshops
presented as part of the state’s Connecting to Collections project.  The
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, “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.
 
While the workshops are free, pre-registration is required. You can
register online at www.oregonheritage.org after Aug. 7.
 
The Connecting to Collections project is administered by the Oregon
Heritage Commission. The Connecting to Collections project is funded in
part by a grant from the federal Institute of Museum and Library
Services.
