Essential Policies and Procedures for Cultural Institutions 

An institution’s collections care and business practices are defined by its written policies and procedures. Institutional memory is often lost through staff changes, but best practices are encoded in these important documents. This program will provide an overview of policy and planning documents that are essential for collections care, such as collections management policies, handling guidelines, and mission statements. Participants will learn the critical components of these documents and be given tangible examples of how to adapt them to different institutions. Policy development, approval, and implementation responsibilities of staff, volunteers, and board will be discussed.

Presenter: Anastasia Matijkiw, Program Manager, DHPSNY
