Preservation Week 2011 has brought us many examples of how to save our treasures – both those help by families and by our community museums.Â Â I’ve added a link to a Nebraska’s PBS website with several excellent, short, easily viewed videos on problems facing our small museums.Â Note also the excellent articles written by experts to enhance those already available from the Library of Congress (see list below).
Our local history museums are our community attics and basements and need support in providing the best care they can for our artifacts, antiques, documents and photographs.Â If you are a board member or volunteer of one of our local museums, please take the time to view these videos. They can help you recognize problems and plan for the future!
