VIRTUAL CLASS Topic 2: Looking Ahead with a Long-Range Conservation Plan
February 9 and 16, 10 am – 12 pm CST
Instructor: Nicole Grabow, Director of Preventive Conservation
A Long-Range Conservation Plan (LRCP) will help your institution to prioritize preservation needs and develop concrete goals for the short-, medium-, and long-term. In this 2-session course participants will draft their own LRCP and learn how to use it to achieve conservation treatment goals and to submit competitive grant proposals for state and federal funding. The course includes 4-6 hours of work outside of class time and will also cover the ten agents of deterioration, how to mitigate those agents through active collections care practices, and other key concepts of preventive conservation.
Technical requirements: ability to use Zoom and to share documents via Google. During this course, individual plans may be shared with the instructor for feedback purposes, but not between participants unless permission is explicitly given.
This registration includes only Topic 2, a total of 2 sessions.
