Preservation Best Practices for Optimal Collections Care is part of Save Pennsylvania's Past, a statewide effort to preserve the millions of objects and historic artifacts that shape the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's history and define our nation. As part of this two-year project, the Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts (CCAHA) will present six training programs in Pennsylvania's eight regions to prepare staff to address the challenges threatening Pennsylvania's world-class collections.
Save Pennsylvania's Past is an initiative led by CCAHA in partnership with the Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission, Pennsylvania Federation of Museums and Historical Organizations, and LYRASIS. The project is supported by an Institute of Museum and Library Services Connecting to Collections Statewide Implementation Grant.
