Connecting to Collections: A Call to Action Connecting to Collections: A Call to Action The IMLS Connecting to Collections Bookshelf, informative, practical resources to help the nation's museums and libraries sustain our heritage. To help raise the conservation IQ of museums, libraries, and archives, IMLS, in cooperation with the American Association of State and Local History (AASLH), offered over 2,800 free copies of the IMLS Connecting to Collections Bookshelf, a core set of books, DVDs, online resources, and an annotated bibliography that are essential for the care of collections. The Bookshelf focuses on collections typically found in art or history museums and in libraries' special collections, with an added selection of texts for zoos, aquaria, public gardens, and nature centers. It will address such topics as the philosophy and ethics of collecting, collections management and planning, emergency preparedness, and culturally specific conservation issues. Available online! Recipients of the Bookshelf also received a 44-page User's Guide (PDF, 1MB).
