It's almost Labor Day. They may not tell you this, but hundreds of thousands of Oregonians appreciate the work that you've done during the past year to care for the important cultural collections and facilities of our state.

In order to make your work a little bit easier during the coming year, Oregon Heritage has created a new webpage<http://mindyourcollections.org/collections/> of collections care information created by other Oregonians. You will find information about audio preservation, digital stewardship and curation, textile care, paper preservation, collections policies and more written by Oregon heritage practitioners.

If you're looking for guidance that isn't there, you can arrange to get help from a member of the Oregon Heritage MentorCorps. Mentors, who are specially trained professionals and volunteers, can help provide information and planning assistance about collections care issues. Contact heritage.mentorcorps at oregon.gov<mailto:heritage.mentorcorps at oregon.gov> to request a mentor or suggest other topics to include. If your organization has created collections care information you would like included on the webpage, contact heritage.info at oregon.gov<mailto:heritage.info at oregon.gov>

This MindYourCollections website and the Oregon Heritage MentorCorps were created with a grant to the Oregon Heritage Commission, working with a halfdozen statewide and regional heritage organizations, from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services.

On behalf of all Oregonians, thanks for what you do. Have a Happy and Safe Labor Day.
