Collections Colleague Circle
Tuesday, February 9, 10 am - noon, Danbury Railway Museum
(snow date February 16)
At our next Collections Colleague Circle, on February 9, 2016, we are proposing to share easy techniques, tips, and can’t-live-without-tools that simplify your job in collections care and management. The idea is to share with one another tips and tricks that any of us can do to make our work easier, improve efficiency, and/or benefit the artifacts in our care. Examples that have been suggested are: how to “scrunch” acid-free tissue in a way that eliminates sharp edges; rubber-stamping your object accession tags; and coding accession files for easy access and retrieval.
Maybe you have a favorite tool to tell us about, or have found a great way to streamline a process--whatever, as long as it is simple and easy to share. We hope to include some or all of our quick tips in a hands-on session at the CLHO Annual Conference in June. The Colleague Circle will be a great way to “test drive” these brief presentations, and it should be a lot of fun for everyone—like sharing a magic trick!

What is a CLHO Colleague Circle?
In response to requests from the Needs and Satisfaction Survey that was conducted earlier this year, the CLHO has developed a series of programs that are designed to meet the specific needs and interests of CLHO members. Each Colleague Circle has been developed with a specific interest group in mind so that program speakers, topics and discussions can be better focused to meet participant's needs. Four groups have already been scheduled for the fall, feel free to attend the one that piques your interest and fits your needs.
