Caring for Heritage Collections during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Cultural heritage institutions are coping with many challenges as the world deals with the COVID-19 pandemic. While collections are not directly at risk, the pandemic complicates their care. A new resource, “Caring for Heritage Collections during the COVID-19 Pandemic”, was developed by an ad-hoc task force at the Canadian Conservation Institute (CCI) to help staff from heritage institutions ensure that collections and heritage materials remain safe. The point of departure for the resource were the questions received from collections professionals in various countries and types of institutions.
