Connecting to Collections Online Community 

Please help Heritage Preservation continue to provide the best in collections care resources and online training opportunities – free of charge – by making a tax-deductible donation today. Your contribution will help Heritage Preservation work to sustain the array of free resources available through the Connecting to Collections Online Community.

Heritage Preservation moderates the Connecting to Collections (C2C) Online Community, an interactive resource that connects staff at small museums, archives, and libraries with each other and with solid information about collections careThe community was originally launched in 2011, in cooperation with the American Association for State and Local History and with funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). The features of the site include:

  • Meeting Room which hosts free Webinars with leading conservation professionals;
  • Featured Resource that highlights new or particularly helpful information resources–the feature changes approximately every two weeks;
  • Discussion Forum where online community members can post questions and assist one another;
  • Calendar with announcements of upcoming C2C Online Community events, online preservation training opportunities, and grant deadlines; and
  • an Archive of past C2C Online Community discussions and presentation sorted by topic.

About the Connecting to Collections Initiative:
IMLS created Connecting to Collections: A Call to Action: a multi-year, multi-faceted national initiative to raise public awareness and inspire action. The initiative is grounded in the results of the Heritage Preservation publication: A Public Trust at Risk: The Heritage Health Index Report on the State of America's Collections.
