Help Preserving Your Collections

Nebraska has many museums and libraries with great historical collections.  Getting help to preserve those collections  is a big challenge, especially for small organizations.      Connecting to Collections Online Community    is a new free interactive resource to connect staff at small museums, archives, and libraries with each other and top-flight  information about collections care.    Visit the site and register (free) to access features such as:

Meeting Room hosting  free Webinars with leading conservation professionals
Discussion Forum where online community members can post questions
Calendar of events,  online training opportunities, and grant deadlines
Topics Archive  of past C2C Online Community discussions and presentations

The Online Community has a Facebook page  http://www.facebook.com/C2Ccommunity

The Community is based on the initiative begun by the Institute of Museum and Library Service (IMLS) called Connecting to Collections.  The initiative has included grant programs, national forums, workshops, a bookshelf distribution, and webinars.
