Information about preservation workshops provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS)-funded Californians Connecting to Collections Project (C3) is now on the California Preservation Program website www.calpreservation.org/services/c3.html.
This multi-year, statewide preservation project provides information, education, and training to California heritage institutions. The first workshop series, "Protecting Cultural Collections: Disaster Prevention, Preparedness, Response & Recovery, " starts in February 2011 and over the next year will be held in 8 different locations throughout the State. A follow-up workshop series to test disaster plans will start later this year.
"C3" Project partners include: California Association of Museums, California Historical Society, California Library Association, California State Archives, California State Library, California State Parks. With assistance from: California Preservation Program, Balboa Art Conservation Center, and the Western States & Territories Preservation Assistance Service.
Celeste DeWald, California Association of Museums, and Barclay Ogden, California Preservation Program, are the Californians Connecting to Collections Project Co-Coordinators.
