Museum Gets Expert Help in Conserving Mandarin's Artifacts


Scanlan, Dan, The Florida Times Union


Byline: DAN SCANLAN

The city's only historic museum now has expert help in conserving Mandarin's artifacts, thanks to the donation of conservation books, DVDs and online resources from the Institute of Museum and Library Services' Connecting to Collections Bookshelf.

The Mandarin Museum and Historical Society was awarded the resource after it filed an application describing the needs and plans for care of its collections of artifacts from the Losco Winery and other sites.

The IMLS is the primary source of federal funding of the nation's museums and libraries, and is awarding 3,000 free sets of the IMLS Bookshelf by the end of 2009.

Its bookshelf program focuses on collections typically found in history or art museums and in libraries' special collections, and addresses topics like the philosophy and ethics of collecting, collections management and planning, emergency preparedness, and culturally specific conservation issues.

The Mandarin Museum and Historical Society is at 11964 Mandarin Road, with information at www.mandarinmuseum.net.
