Training

Face-to face workshops offered by BACC are available for exclusive presentations or at association meetings. A wide range of topics are offered, from workshops appropriate for institutions just embarking on a preservation planning program to specific, issue-oriented sessions geared to institutions that are further along in their conservation program. Just a few of the current topics available for training are:

  • Basic Condition Reporting for Collections Managers
  • Biological Attack! Pests and Mold
  • Care of Collections: Paintings and Painted Surfaces
  • Creating an Emergency Preparedness and Response Plan for Collections
  • Disaster Recovery for Collections: The First 24-48 Hours After a Disaster
  • Handling and Housekeeping for Collections
  • Making Material Choices for Paper and Photographs
  • Surveying and Assessing Collection Needs
Using the GoToWebinar platform and experience gleaned in over a decade of field service training, webinars repurpose content developed in BACC’s successful face-to-face workshops in a shorter format that is more readily accessible for participants. In 2012, BACC presented The Preventive Care Primer Series. The Primer included:
  • Introduction to Handling and Housekeeping
  • Introduction to the Environment and Its Effects on Collections
  • Introduction to Integrated Pest Management
  • Introduction to Emergency Preparedness
