Caring for Our Historic Heritage: Developing a Housekeeping Plan for Historic Contents and Interiors
Why is cleaning collection material and storage areas a key aspect of preservation? What is the difference between housekeeping and collection maintenance? How can monitoring dust be a way to track effectiveness of a comprehensive housekeeping program? Join Emma Ziraldo, NEH Preventive Conservation Fellow, for this webinar. She will address the need for collections to be kept dust-free and give an overview to developing a housekeeping plan for historic interiors and their contents, as well as discuss housekeeping supplies, cleaning methods and staff training.
Preservation Planning in Practice: Strategically Guiding Collections Care
In this webinar, presenters will begin by discussing the different types of assessments that cultural heritage institutions of all sizes can use to evaluate their collections care needs and jump start their preservation planning process. Presenters will then describe an onsite preservation needs assessment conducted in 2015 by CCAHA at the Brandywine River Museum of Art, and how that assessment was used to inform the Museum’s preservation plan. They will discuss the collaborative process that allowed the Brandywine River Museum of Art to seek funding for projects identified in the assessment as high priority, and will include the role assessments played in drafting strategic and operational planning documents and how to present these initiatives as priorities to internal and external stakeholders.
Resource Realities and Working with What You’ve Got: Conservation Work in Cuba and Disaster Recovery in Puerto Rico
In underserved locations, important collections face environmental and economic danger. Controlled environments are often rare in regional museums and libraries, as well as equipment and resources to make improvements. Sustainable collections care with access to supplies is unachievable. Theft can be widespread. Join CCAHA Executive Director Laura Hortz Stanton and CCAHA Senior Photograph Conservator Barbara Lemmen to learn about conservation treatment work in Cuba and disaster recovery efforts in Puerto Rico.

Sustaining Projects when Grant Funding Ends
Starting with a small grant to survey their archive in 2011, the William Way LGBT Community Center has steadily upgraded and professionalized the John J. Wilcox, Jr. LGBT Archives over the past ten years. Their fundraising success makes them an ideal case study for examining strategies for leveraging grant-funded projects. Join CCAHA Director of Development Lee Price and Director of the John J. Wilcox, Jr. Archives John Anderies for advice on how to effectively build on success—the art of leveraging gifts.
