Preservation Workshops and Conferences in Connecticut

The following organizations offer programs or list program announcements on their websites and/or in their newsletters. The list includes some regional organizations which occasionally offer programs in Connecticut or nearby.

Don't be put off by a workshop offered by an organization from an unrelated field. If you are interested in information on preserving historical society collections, a workshop offered by an archivists or librarians group may still cover basic information that you need to know, for example, how to save wet documents after a leak or proper storage practices. Look at the program description to see if it's right for you.

If your organization routinely offers workshops or conferences on preservation topics and you would like to be listed here, please let the State Library's Preservation Office know.
