American Association for State and Local History On-Line Course
Collections Management
July 9 – September 3, 2018
This eight week online class is about managing cultural collections and will cover collections policies, how to know what you have, what you need to know about your collections, how to know where everything in your collection is located, and making sure that someone gets some good out of your collection. Collections management is all of the activities related to the administration of collections including planning, development, care, conservation, documentation, and making those collections available to the public. You’ll learn why museums have so many pieces of paper for each object and what all those numbers on the paper and objects are about. You will figure out what to keep and possibly what to let go of and last but not least, who should do what with all those things.
