Museums 101: Collections – POSTPONED

Tuesday, June 23, 2015 at 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Whether you’re just getting started in museums and historical societies, or you’ve been working in the field for years, the three-part Museums 101 class is a great way to catch up on the latest thinking in museum theory. It’s also a core requirement for the History Center’s Museum Studies Certificate.

In Museums 101: Collections, we’ll explore collections policies, accessions & cataloging, handling, storage, display, cleaning and conservation, and much more. You’ll go away with a better understanding of current standards and best practices, plus a practical list of tools and resources to help you meet them realistically.

Instructor Stacey Potts holds an MA in museums and has served on the History Center board. Instructor Eva Ulz has worked in museums for two decades, currently as curator of the History Center.
