Collections Care Training Program at the Campbell Center for Historic Preservation Studies

Educational programs focused on the care of humanities collections for staff of museums, libraries, and historical organizations.

The Campbell Center for Historic Preservation Studies requests $250,000 in funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to support collections care training for museum, library, and archive personnel to develop and build the essential skills and knowledge required to care for and provide access to humanities collections. The Campbell Center’s national collections care training program will: (1) address the nationally documented need for training by providing collections care training to a minimum of 238 individuals from over 132 heritage institutions from across the nation; (2) provide financial assistance to participants to subsidize training; (3) develop new courses to meet stated participant needs; (4) sustain and expand collaborative partnerships and affiliations with other service providers; and (5) maintain excellence in collections care training through its curriculum, faculty, and facilities.
