Join OMA for our May 26 Webinar: Caring for Collections During COVID-19
(Please Note: You must be logged in to register)
In this lively and accessible presentation, three ICA conservators will share information and resources on caring for cultural heritage collections during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Learn about the dos and definitely-do-nots of collection decontamination, get the most up-to-date professional guidelines and practical information from national collecting and preservation organizations about disinfecting museum spaces and establishing cleaning protocols, and hear about what issues of closure and reopening to take into consideration.
Attendees will learn the answers to the most frequently asked questions, and there will be plenty of time to ask your own questions. A hand-out of resources will be available after the session, along with a session recording for those registered.
