CONNECTING-TO-COLLECTIONS (C2C): PLEASE COME!
FREE FOCUS GROUPS IN Medford, Bend, and Pendleton
Worried about Preserving Your Heritage Collection? You Can Make a
Please attend one of three free meetings being held in Medford (September
13), Bend (September 14), or Pendleton (September 28). We need your input
to make a successful plan for preservation in Oregon. These meetings are
sponsored and endorsed by many museum, library, and archival organizations:
the leadership for this project is listed at the end of this email message.
By attending one of these meetings you can help the heritage
community...archives, libraries, and museums...plan a better future for
Oregon's heritage collections. A grant from the federal Institute for
Museums and Library Services (IMLS) to the Oregon Museum Association on
behalf of archive, library, and museum partners throughout Oregon is making
it possible for us to take stock of our preservation, training, and disaster
preparedness needs. From this a statewide preservation plan to address
those needs will be developed. The plan is a necessary first step to secure
funding for future implementation.
Refreshments will be provided. Please let us know you are coming so that we
can plan adequate seating and refreshments by emailing Ruth Metz (
<mailto:ruthmetz at spiretech.com> ruthmetz at spiretech.com). You may also email
your questions to Ruth Metz.
