This section of Sustaining Places is dedicated to collections care and management, and will be especially useful for giving volunteers and staff basic understandings of best practices for handling, moving, and caring for different kinds of objects. Each kind of material has its own section, focusing on ways to handle and care for that kind of object.

For a broader understanding of handling instructions, start with the Object Handling Kit, which also includes general resources, tips, and tricks for collections handling, then delve deeper into the more detailed sections.
