Advocacy and Outreach for Preservation - Webinar (06/17/20)


Some library supporters never give a second thought to the preservation needs of library collections. This session introduces collections care professionals to ways they can advocate for their preservation programs and strategies they can employ to build awareness of collections and their preservation needs.

It will cover internal advocacy, public engagement, national and regional campaigns, and soliciting funding organizations.

This webinar is for library staff with roles in collections care, exhibiting, or technical services. Any staff with an interest in improving collections care are welcome.
