Processing New Donations to Museum Collections

May 18th at 10: 00 am

via Zoom


This 90-minute workshop, led by the Washington State Historical Society’s Head of Collections, Maggie Wetherbee, will cover the basics of creating a permanent record of an object in a museum collection.  This session will introduce best practices around legal documentation, numbering conventions, and using the collections management database Past Perfect. After completing this workshop participants will be able to support the Aberdeen Museum of History in processing new donations and inventorying and updating records on existing collections items. A second session will be presented over the summer to provide additional training in how to handle artifacts safely.
