Sustaining Places

Resources for small museums and historic sites


Look through our library of informative PowerPoints and Two-Minute Technique videos from the rest of the site.


The PowerPoints are produced by the Introduction to Museum Studies class at the University of Delaware and cover a range of topics from the creation of good exhibition labels to navigating abandoned cultural property legislation.

Two-Minute Techniques

These videos are designed to refresh your memory or introduce volunteers and interns to quick collections care techniques, such as cleaning glass, marking objects, and creating photograph storage folders.

Project Videos

More in-depth than our Two-Minute Techniques, these project videos offer case studies and tips for best practice when dealing with antique furniture, historic trees, and much, much more.
