Developing a Collections Management Policy: Start Yours Here!

Danielle Benden, Owner, Driftless Pathways LLC

Does the museum or historical society for which you volunteer or work have a collections management policy? If not, or if yours is outdated, this workshop is for you. Come learn about the “what, why, and how” of collections management policies—what they are, why they’re important, and how they are developed—and then create one for your institution. In this session, participants will be guided through the process of establishing a policy. A list of resources, including a collections management policy template, will be provided to each participant.
