Let's Talk About...Collection Management Policies
Tuesday, November 19, 2013
Boscobel House & Gardens (Visitor's Center- Thompson Room)
10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
All collecting institutions are driven by a guiding mission and strategic goals. Collections Management Policies
reinforce these goals and guide the institution in all aspects of caring for collections. All staff can have a role to play in the process of writing and reviewing these policies; in fact, the most successful policies will include
staff involvement at all levels. GHHN and the Hudson Valley DHP invite you to join DHP Team Archivist Mindy Gordon on November 19 from 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM at Boscobel to learn more about these important policies that should be in place at your organization.This half-day workshop will highlight the policies which are most crucial to daily collections care including acquisitions, reference and access, preservation and deaccession/disposal. Space is limited--register today!

Let's Talk About...The DHP and Conservation Treatment Grants
December 16, 2013
Harness Racing Museum and Hall of Fame
10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Greater Hudson Heritage Network and the Hudson Valley Documentary Heritage Program (DHP) invite you to join us as we discuss these two great grant opportunities. This informal and informational session held at the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame in Goshen, will discuss the DHP and the GHHN Conservation Treatment grants and provide tips and techniques for writing great grant applications.
The Documentary Heritage Program (DHP) is a statewide program established by law to provide financial support and guidance to not-for-profit organizations that hold, collect and make available New York's historical records. Funding is available to support sound archival administration, and for projects that relate to groups and topics traditionally under-represented in New York’s historical record. DHP Grant Project Types include: Documentation and Arrangement & Description. The DHP program is administered by the New York State Archives, a unit of the New York State Education Department. For more information on the DHP Grant, and to see a list of past grantees, please click here.
The Conservation Treatment Grant Program, administered by the Greater Hudson Heritage Network (GHHN), in the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA), provides support for treatment procedures to aid in stabilizing and preserving objects in collections of museums, historical, and cultural organizations in New York State. The work must be performed by, or under direct supervision of, a professional conservator. For more information on the Conservation Treatment Grant Program, please click here.
Not sure if your project is applicable for the DHP Grant? Wondering if your damaged
object is eligible for the Conservation Treatment Grant? Come to the workshop and ask us! We are here to answer your questions! And if your application wasn't successful last year, come to the workshop and see what you can do to make your application stronger- your object deserves to be preserved for the future!
Psst! Conservators- this is your opportunity to attend the workshop and learn what is
expected in your condition report and to meet professionals in the museum community!
We hope to see you there! Space is limited! Sign up today!
