Connecting to Collections

Connecting to Collections Statewide Training

Florida Connecting to Collections, with funding from the Institute of Museums and Library Services (IMLS), brings collections care professionals together to learn best practices and develop core institutional documents in a structured training environment. Mentors and mentees work together to develop plans and policies, thereby enhancing the knowledge and experience of each. In the process, regional networks of professionals are developed and each network expands the range of colleagues to call on for information, expertise, and leadership.

Program highlights

Collaborating organizations working with the Florida Association of Museums Foundation, include the Florida Art Museum Directors Association, Florida Association of Museums, Florida Association of Zoos and Aquariums, Florida Department of State, Florida Library Association, Society of Florida Archivists, Florida Public Archaeology Network, and Florida Trust for Historic Preservation.
