Upcoming Workship

Tuesday, March 23 and 30, 2022, 6 to 8 p.m.
Virtual Technical Workshop: Cataloging 101: How to Identify and Keep Track of Your Collections

Designed for small museums and local historical societies, this two-part webinar covers how to create catalog records of a variety of different types of objects (books, documents, archival collections, museum artifacts). What are the important aspects to document? And how can you identify and describe objects in a way that makes them accessible to others, such as colleagues in the organization, outside researchers, or those who many come to the collection in the future? The program includes a brief overview of software programs that provide good cataloguing options and an overview of the New Hampshire History Network, a statewide database of collection items held at museums and other cultural organizations. This virtual workshop is offered over two nights. The cost is $50 for members of the New Hampshire Historical Society and $75 for nonmembers. Advance registration is required via Eventbrite.com.
