Packing, Storing, and Transporting Collections
Presenters: Christian Edwards, Assistant Keeper, NC Collection Gallery and Mary Hauser, Registrar and Associate Director, Gregg Museum of Art & Design
For most museums, the bulk of our artifacts and objects are stored out of sight of our visitor and day-to-day operations. This presentation will examine the different factors professionals need to consider before packing, storing, and transporting artifacts and collections objects. What materials will best protect certain artifacts? How do you decide the best type of storage for your collection type and specific circumstance? What goes into space planning for a collections storage area? What types of transport are appropriate for various kinds of materials and situations? What compromises can be made to meet budgetary limitations without sacrificing artifact and employee safety? Session attendees will leave with knowledge of available resources and materials and the skills needed to make informed decisions about caring for collections on the move.
