Connecting to Collections Care

Have a specific question about collections care? You’ve come to the right place! The Connecting to Collections Care (C2C Care) Community allows staff and volunteers at small and mid-sized institutions to post collections care questions. The forum is monitored by volunteer conservation professionals who answer questions directly or can seek the assistance of conservators and collections care professionals who provide expert assistance. All submitted questions that meet the guidelines will be posted to the community and reviewed and answered by our monitors and experts. The forum is also used to share announcements about C2C Care webinars and courses, as well as free resources (such as grants, events, publications, etc.) of interest to our core audience of smaller institutions. We encourage you to review additional terms of participation at https://community.culturalheritage.org/termsandconditions.

    RE: Cleaning interactives during COVID times

    Hi Maureen, I am the C2CC monitor this week. I can't recommend specific products, but I do want to question the need for special disinfecting when it's understood now that airborne, rather than surface transmission, is the primary route for virus spread. ...
