As a Historian I continue to learn new things and attend classes. In January, 2013 I attended a series of online webinars on “Collections Care Basics.” This class is about caring for your collections whether it be books, photographs, quilts, etc. The “Risk Evaluation” class in February, 2013 is about where you store your collections and are they at risk for any kind of damage. Such as do you store your items in boxes on the floor in the basement. If so, there is a potential risk of damage because of condensation from the floor to the box, a flood, a burst water pipe, etc. Like wise in the attic. The heat and cold changes of temperature can damage some items such as photographs. I have signed up for several other classes through this year, 2013 and am hoping to receive more badges of completion to add here.
