    The Collections Care & Conservation Alliance presents 

    Planning and Implementing Successful Collections Assessments (webinar)

    Tuesday, June 6, 2023

    2:00-3:30 PM


    Do you need professional advice for caring for your museum, archives, or library collections? Are you wondering what exactly is included in a collections assessment, how to go about getting one, and how to pay for it? Have you received an assessment report and aren't sure where to go from here? Are you a potential assessor wondering how the process works? This webinar will cover the purpose of collections assessments, expectations for assessors and host organizations, possible funding sources, and implementation strategies. We'll hear from two assessors and a representative of a cultural heritage organization, who will discuss both theory and practice in the real world.


    Presented by

    • Eileen Corcoran, Director of Service & Outreach, Vermont Historical Society 
    • Erica Donnis, Archivist and Independent Collections Consultant 
    • Chessie Monks-Kelly, Archivist/Curator at Historic Saranac Lake, New York
