Upper Midwest Conservation Association announces collections
management workshops for Spring 2005.

April 2005 marks the start of two, one-day collections management
workshops presented by Upper Midwest Conservation Association. These
workshops will travel throughout the Midwest and will provide
training on collections documentation and labeling techniques. Those
interested in attending can register at anytime up to a week before
the workshop start date by contacting the UMCA Preservation Services
Department.  The following workshops will be offered:

    Techniques for Documenting Artifacts and Describing What is
    Observed: Participants will use study collection objects to
    learn about various examination techniques and documentation of
    findings. Techniques will include: determination of age, media,
    and provenance; distinguishing original media; and condition

    Applying Accession Numbers to Museum Artifacts: A hands-on
    workshop providing practical instruction on labeling techniques.
    Participants will work with a variety of artifacts from a study
    collection to learn the appropriate methods for different object
    types and learn about standardized accessioning systems.

These are two one-day workshops offered sequentially. Registration
