All Aboard: Engineering Collections Care Training for Small Museums


In small museums, the staff wears many hats and have many jobs including the responsibility of caring for collections. It is a fundamental responsibility of museum management to support professional development and to make sure that all of their staff has  knowledge of current standards and collection care practices. The staff should be offered training opportunities and encouraged to take advantage of internal training programs and mentoring support for all full-time staff, part-time staff, and volunteers. Security, facility and events staff, even though they do not handle objects, should also be trained in collections care techniques since they work in close proximity to collections, educate the public, and need to understand their role in the overall preventive conservation measures and requirements of the museum.

How do you make sure your staff gets the training they need to do their jobs? The focus of this webinar is building professional development opportunities for the small museums staff and volunteers. Internal training programs might include developing a policy and procedure manual, physical training programs, topic specific topic lectures, and weekly and monthly meeting structures where training focus is emphasized and presented. External opportunities include developing multi-museum training programs, exchanges of staff with other regional museum of similar size and collection base, as well as attending specific training schools, workshops, webinars and other professional events as tight budget restraints of the museum allow. Training is not only for newly hired staff and volunteers, but also for senior staff who help with mentoring new staff and volunteers and to keep senior staff current with to existing and new policies and procedures for collections care.

This webinar will provide you with proven, working scenarios that you can take on board and develop to fit the training specifics for your staff and collections,
