CCAHA is offering a series of programs during 2013 to provide training in a variety of collections care activities that are the cornerstone of a preservation program for cultural collections. The Collections Care Training programs are for staff who are involved in collections care activities or have responsibility for cultural collections, such as librarians, archivists, curators, collections managers, stewards of historic house museums, and records managers.

Support for these programs was generously provided in part by the Philadelphia Cultural Fund, the Independence Foundation, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and the McLean Contributionship.
