Preservation 101 Workshop: Preservation Management and Collections Care

This two-day workshop, offered by the Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC), provides a basic introduction to the concepts and standards used to build an effective preservation program. The curriculum covers preservation policies, environmental and storage conditions, care and handling of collection materials, reformatting, emergency preparedness, and program assessment. The instructors will discuss realistic approaches to preservation at small- and medium-sized organizations, and small group work will encourage participants to discuss their own preservation goals together. The cost for this workshop is $150 for members of the New Hampshire Historical Society and $200 for nonmembers. Please note that registration is being handled by the NEDCC. To register, please visit NEDCC’s Current Training Programs page and scroll down to NH–Preservation Management and Collections Care Workshop.
