“Object Handling Basics”

From the gloves we wear to the hazards we may encounter, handling objects in a museum setting is anything but simple. In this 60-minute live chat event, Mary Coughlin, a professor with The George Washington University’s Museum Studies program, will provide an overview of object handling best practices followed by a live Q&A session. This webinar presents a fantastic opportunity to train staff and volunteers on object handling and begin a conversation on institution-wide policies. We encourage you to log into this webinar on a computer in a conference room or other gathering space and invite your colleagues to watch this session with you!
