This community began in 2010 as Connecting to Collections Online Community, a part of the Institute of Museum and Library Services‘ (IMLS) national initiative, Connecting to Collections (C2C). To learn more about the Connecting to Collections Program and its history and legacy, check Connecting to Collections Program, History, and Legacy. Initially, this Online Community was moderated by Heritage Preservation in cooperation with the American Association for State and Local History and funded by the IMLS.
In December 2014, the Foundation for Advancement in Conservation took over the community, and, with the name change to Connecting to Collections Care (C2C Care), it became a formal program of the Foundation. We continue to be funded by generous support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
Connecting to Collections Care is committed to serving small and mid-sized cultural institutions and to helping those institutions to care for their collections in the best way possible. Our Advisory Group Charge can be found here.
