Session Description
Archivists advocate daily for their collections. But with limited resources, how do archivists successfully advocate for conservation projects? How can these projects spark conversations with your constituencies? Conservation projects provide archivists opportunities to engage their audience and demonstrate their continual stewardship of their collections. In this session, the panelists will share how they acquired funding for conservation projects, managed project logistics, and worked with and chose a conservator.
