In this webinar, we discuss FICs, those mysterious artifacts that show up in your collection without a signed deed of gift or other paperwork. What do you do with FICs? Do you accession and number them the same as permanent collection items? Where might you look for clues about their donor or lender? What do abandoned property laws have to do with FICs? And finally, why is it important for your organization to have its collections paperwork in order?
Our guest speaker is Melissa Owens, Registrar and Exhibits Coordinator for the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, Oklahoma City.
This webinar is part of the StEPs Lab series of continuing education offered to both StEPs program participants and all others interested in collections care.
Applying what you learn in a Lab to your policies and practices helps your organization make meaningful progress. The more progress you make, the more boxes you can check off in the StEPs workbook. The more boxes you check off, the more Bronze, Silver, and Gold certificates your organization earns. And that translates into more credibility, more support, and an organization that is a valuable asset to its community for many more years to come.
