The training Basic Collection Techniques is an introductory module on care and management of natural history collections aimed at persons that have limited experience with collection work or those who wish to update their knowledge in this field.
This training will consist of three main types of content: a block on preventive conservation, a block on documentation, digitization and labelling and an introduction to collection types including aspects of dry and wet collections with their specific requirements.
This training will provide a brief insight into the most essential topics of basic collection care and management, including aspects of preservation and preventive conservation.
The training Basic Collection Techniques is followed by a one-day training on shipping specimens internationally. This is an introduction to sending out collection objects in compliance with all legal and regulatory requirements. Basic Collection Techniques and Shipping Workshop can be combined to a whole week of training in Berlin.
The Shipping Workshop on November 29 can be booked separately.
