The online community, Connecting to Collections, has added three new courses on topics relevant to the care of audiovisual materials to its free webinar series Caring for Yesterday’s Treasures–Today. Each course consists of 4 to 6 webinars spread over a few weeks. Participants are encouraged to submit questions relevant to their collections. If you attend all of the webinars and complete some simple assignments, you’ll receive a certificate of completion.
Courses now available for registration:
- Fundraising for Collections Care – September and October 2013
- Caring for Audiovisual Materials – October 2013
- Outreach Activities for Collections Care – November 2013
Even if you can’t make the webinars, you might take a moment to browse through the resources or sign up to be part of the community. You can find numerous links to authoritative information on the care and management of different types of materials from photographs to natural science specimens and even information on emergency preparedness.
