Do you know the condition of the pieces in your collection? Can those pieces be exhibited or loaned? Do they need conservation? A good condition report is one of the cornerstones of documentation for any piece in a museum collection. There are many reasons to complete a good report yet this step often gets skipped. Come join us for this webinar and learn about the reasons to do a condition report for the items in your collection.

We will also cover the basics of condition reporting including how to examine and document a piece and, as well, take a look at common condition problems for a variety of material types that you may find in your collections. Finally, there will be resources that you can use to learn what hidden damage you may find in your collection.
