Introduction to collection care
We held an ‘introduction to collection care day’ on 22 October. Topics covered included:
- identifying risks and appreciating a range of actions for protecting collections,
- understanding and sourcing archival enclosures
- looking at the use of a broad and adaptable framework as a tool to help plan and prioritise activities.
It was great to be able to meet and work with a dedicated group of enthusiastic heritage activists from across the county. Many signed up to receive our quarterly e-newsletter and join the Heritage Hub community.
Participants told us it was a:
“Really good introduction to ‘collection care’ no matter if an individuals collection or a society’s.”
“very informative . . . and have learnt a lot”
We also had some useful feedback to help us make the experience even more helpful next time around, and we plan to hold another introduction day in the new year. Although we don’t have a date yet we already have a waiting list – watch the news pages on the Heritage Hub website for an announcement www.heritagehub.org.uk
