The IMLS is running a series of free webinars about caring for collections.
Per their description:
Using the content of the Connecting to Collections Bookshelf, Forums, and Workshops, these highly interactive webinars will connect you with experts and colleagues to discuss issues of common concern. The series has a dual focus: four webinars will help you learn how to conduct outreach to the media, the public, and funders on behalf of collections, and two webinars will help you derive maximum benefit from the Connecting to Collections Bookshelf.
Past webinars will be archived so you can view them on your own time.
