    ABCs of Collections Management 

    Wednesday, March 18
    hosted by the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History
    Ann Arbor

    Registration for this workshop has been more robust than anticipated and we expect it to fill quickly. We will start a waiting list. 
    If the list indicates enough interest, we may schedule a second offering of this workshop in 2020 based on the locations and availability of those on the list.
    (In other words, if registration is closed, please add your name to the waiting list if you are interested in participating in this workshop.)

    How do we create a collections policy?  How do we document donations of artifacts and what should you say – and not say – and do for your donors?  We have bugs and rodents; what do we do?  What are agents of deterioration?  How do we number artifacts?  What forms should my museum develop to ensure we comply with collections’ legal issues?  

    If you have ever asked any of these questions, the ABCs of Collections Management is the perfect workshop for you. You’ll spend a day with collections experts, who will present invaluable information about collections policies and collections management; handling and moving artifacts; agents of deterioration; good housekeeping; displaying and sorting collections; and much more.  Have all your questions answered!

    The workshop will be led by Megan McAdow of Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum at SVSU. 

    The workshop will take place in the new location of the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History in the new Biological Sciences Building next door to the old museum. 

    Cost includes lunch and materials.
