Conservation ConneCTion is Connecticut’s response to the Connecting to Collections initiative funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Conservation ConneCTion, which is based at the Connecticut State Library, was created by a consortium of museum and library organizations throughout the state, including the Connecticut State Library, Commission on Culture and Tourism, Connecticut Humanities Council, Connecticut League of History Organizations, Connecticut State Museum of Natural History and Archeological Center, as well as representatives from various libraries, historical societies, museums and archives in the state. Conservation ConneCTion is a collections care and conservation collaborative representing and open to all collection holding institutions, but not limited to museums, libraries, archives, and historical societies.
The goals of Conservation ConneCTion are to identify collection care needs and to develop a statewide plan to meet them. As well as to:
