Free webinar

June 23, 2021
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM ET

While hazardous materials can be a daunting topic to tackle, it is very possible to not only identify hazards in your own collection, but to also implement straightforward and inexpensive solutions to safely house, store, display and work with these materials. This webinar will take a close look at hazardous materials present in museum collections and how to properly manage their safe storage and handling. It will cover not only the identification of hazards, but also the straightforward steps that can be taken to improve safety and reduce the likelihood of exposure to dangerous substances.

Risk assessment: Resource roundup

Libraries, archives, and museums (LAMs) have long been in the business of mitigating risk—for collections, visitors, and staff. The pandemic has made risk assessment an everyday challenge. As LAMs continue to respond to the pandemic and adjust their reopening plans, risk assessment and scenario-based planning skills will remain important organizational assets. These resources focus on how to prepare for future disasters through crisis management.

Collections Emergency Kits

Free webinar

May 19, 2021

1:00 PM - 2:30 PM ET

Leaky pipe dripping on your storage shelf? Smoke from a kitchen fire nearby? An earthquake causing objects to topple? Collections emergencies can be large and catastrophic, but also small and less severe. Having a well-stocked and thought-out emergency kit on hand can help mitigate the chronic nuisance of a ceiling drip or buy valuable time when planning a more coordinated response for a larger emergency. In honor of MayDay and the essence of being prepared, we will be discussing all things related to collections emergency kits. This talk will examine types of materials to include in your kit, how to manage inventory, where to store your kits, and how to educate your team on the value of this important resource. This webinar reports on the recent efforts of the Smithsonian Institution’s Preparedness and Response in Collections Emergencies (PRICE) Team to understand emergency kit status and needs at the Institution via a year-long survey of each of its museums, archives, and libraries. We will share useful tips from this survey and provide listeners with a great starting point to prepare their own collections emergency kits.

Free webinar

Tuesday, May 25, 2021
3:00 PM ET

Pandemics and epidemics occur more frequently than people realize. This is because they are often referred to by a familiar term such as the flu or the opioid crisis. Other common illnesses such as measles, and surges of pest-borne maladies such as Lyme and West Nile disease are thought of as isolated cases. Few realize the extent to which these diseases spread and how deadly they can be. Add to this infestation of bed bugs, ‘killer hornets’, lice, and social maladies such as cyber-crime and the challenges facing libraries become clear.

Don Byrne is a recognized expert on risk management and community resiliency. He is on the faculty of MIT and Boston University where he teaches classes on crisis response and disaster recovery. His clients include the American Red Cross, FEMA, and numerous F 100 companies.

The performing arts sector is encountering an unprecedented challenge for hosting in-person events safely during this global pandemic, climate crises, and recession. Fortunately, these calamities offer the opportunity for artists and presenters to employ their creativity and ingenuity to develop new types of shared experiences. These free PAR webinar sessions will begin with a framework to help guide decision makers to either modify or virtualize their gatherings using case studies from Denver’s 5 Points Jazz Festival (May 2020) and Alabama’s Women in Jazz Festival (September 2020). Webinars will explore the experiences and hard-won wisdom related to re-opening venues, making audiences feel safe, and exploring new operational protocols for venues and artists.

Free to attend

Featured program: Today's Monuments Men and Women: The Role of the Military and Museums in Cultural Heritage Protection

THE MONUMENTS MEN AND WOMEN OF WORLD WAR II provided us with a roadmap for cultural heritage protection in war, which was later codified in the 1954 Hague Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property during Armed Conflict. Despite efforts of States Parties to improve training and raise
awareness, loss of cultural property during armed conflict has increased at an alarming rate in recent years. To help combat this destruction and raise awareness, the U.S. Army has recently increased its efforts to comply with the Hague Convention with its
new 38G Heritage and Preservation Officer program.

Cori Wegener, Director of the Smithsonian Cultural Rescue Initiative and a former Army Monuments Officer, will provide an overview of the unique partnership between the U.S. Army and
the Smithsonian to recruit, train, and deploy the next generation of Monuments Men and Women.
