Instructor: Brenda Bernier
Using the Kellogg Foundation Logic Model and case studies, participants will learn to adapt four basic collection survey designs to accommodate a wide range of collections and survey goals. They will learn to gauge available resources, define goals, and design appropriate methodologies. During the practicum, the participants will apply the logic model to their own collections.
The participants will develop a systematic approach to help them define preservation needs, set priorities, and balance the sometimes competing needs of a robust photograph conservation program.
