An institution’s collections care and business practices are defined by its written policies and procedures. Institutional memory is often lost through staff changes, but best practices are encoded in these important documents. This program willprovide an  overview of policy and planning documents that are essential for collections care, such as collections management policies, handling guidelines, and mission statements. Participants will learn the critical components of these documents and be given tangible examples of how to adapt them to different institutions. Policy development, approval, and implementation responsibilities of staff, volunteers, and board will be discussed.

Every collection will have some condition issues, and every organization has limits on the level of collections care they can institute. However, by both understanding the overall condition of a collection and identifying urgent items, organizations can determine how to best allocate resources within an overall preservation plan. This webinar will discuss how to identify common condition problems found in paper objects and introduce five priority levels that can be utilized to categorize collection items based on the urgency of conservation needs.
