Celebrating with Collections

Instructor  | Jesse Keel, Associate Preservation Specialist, NEDCC


Please join NEA for an online workshop taught by Associate Preservation Specialist Jesse Keel from the Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC)

When your community (or your nation) is celebrating a major anniversary, the public and press will be interested in archival collections related to that time period. Before you bring out your most precious items, you'll want to attend this introductory webinar to learn the basics about how to protect them during handling, scanning, and exhibition. The instructor will also explain how you can collaborate with other local organizations to save time and money as you engage the public in your community's history. It's never too early to begin planning!

Jesse Keel is based in NEDCC’s Andover, MA office and provides preservation consultations, training programs, assessments, and disaster advice to a variety of cultural heritage organizations nationwide. Prior to joining NEDCC in 2023, Jesse was the Exhibits and Collections Manager at Hildene, The Lincoln Family Home, where she previously served as House Manager. In addition, she has pre-professional experience in a historical society and a university library. Jesse earned an MA in English from the University of Vermont and an MLIS with a concentration in Archives Management from Simmons University.

Please note that this workshop will not be recorded, so please plan to attended live.
