Stewardship: Collections and Historic Preservationby Cinnamon Catlin-Legutko (Editor), Stacy Klingler (Editor), Bob Beatty (Preface by), Scott Carrlee (Contribution by), Bruce Teeple (Contribution by)
Proper collections care, planning, and conservation is an essential responsibility for a museum of any size, but funding for these obligations often falls to the bottom of funding priorities because its constituencies are the quietest. Small museums need affordable ways to provide basic care for their collections and the tools to lobby for additional funds for the long-term health of collections. Small museums often do not have staff expertise on the maintenance and preservation of these large and expensive pieces of history. This book offers practical tips for collections care, including preservation strategies for historic properties and a primer on managing potential harms to your artifacts.
