THIS THREE-YEAR-OLD IS A HERITAGE SUCCESS

Three years can make a noticeable difference for heritage collections. That difference will grow even larger in the years to come.

In early 2013, the Oregon Heritage Commission, on behalf of a half-dozen statewide and regional partners, received a Connecting to Collections grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to improve collections care and disaster preparedness.

Since then, more than 160 organizations have received training and mentoring in collections care and mentoring. While many are primarily museums, libraries and archives, assistance has also been given to a theatre, a Lions Club, an orchestra, a tour organization and more. Multiple ethnic organizations have participated. Read more<https://oregonheritage.wordpress.com/> in the Oregon Heritage Exchange blog.
