Now more than ever, data drives decisions: Which projects should be funded? Where is staff needed? What activities should take priority over others? How can you find the data to help when you are looking for funding or trying to persuade your community or legislators to provide funds for collections care in you museum, historical society or library? Collections care is an ongoing process and the need for caring for collections doesn’t go away when times are lean. Having your specific needs spelled out can help you make a persuasive argument for future funding.
The Heritage Health Information and the Preservation Statistics programs are both dedicated to collecting and analyzing the information on care for our collections in the broadest sense and they are the go-to programs for the data you need.
This webinar will give you the chance to learn more about these programs and to learn about how you might use the information they provide for your own situations.
