Online and Onsite Workshops with Guided Practicums

The hiring of consultants to help plan for collection storage, pest management, and lighting controls and to train staff involved with these activities. The museum houses approximately 100,000 photographs, 20,000 archaeological artifacts and historic objects, and more than 200,000 manuscripts, maps, and other paper items documenting the history and culture of the Royal Gorge region of Colorado.

This is a first-time request to the National Endowment for the Humanities for the Royal Gorge Regional Museum and History Center, a division of the City of Canon City. The activities the grant would support are online and onsite training, and guided implementation in three topics: 1) Storage Move Plan, 2) Lighting Implementation Plan, 3) Integrated Pest Management Program. The three topics were identified as our institution's highest priorities in the Conservation Assessment Program report of March 2009. The museum and history center requires the assistance of two consultants who will travel to our site and utilize the resources of the Museum Training Network's Mobile Laboratory.
