Preservation 101 is a 3-week hybrid course. The course is intended for individuals who manage cultural collections, with a focus on individuals who are new to preservation practices, may not have had formal preservation training, or are looking to refresh their knowledge of preservation basics.
This online course will present specific preservation topics under larger themes that speak to the related nature of this work. Specific topics covered include storage and housing for various paper materials; environmental considerations and monitoring; exhibition guidelines for preservation; essential preservation processes and procedures; and the basics of prioritizing preservation needs. Instruction will be provided through recorded videos, online resources, and live Q&A sessions. Participants are expected to be active in course discussion boards, complete relevant assignments, and attend live sessions.
