Preserving Nebraska's Cultural Heritage

Hiring a consultant to help the museum's staff create a long-range collections management plan and the purchase of preservation supplies. The plan is fundamental to caring for the collections and will cover emergency preparedness, pest management, and collections storage. The collection includes works from the 18th-century artist-explorers who led the first expeditions to the territory, as well as 20th-century and contemporary works that represent the history and culture of Nebraska.

The Museum of Nebraska will engage a collections management consultant to work with our Collections Supervisor in developing a comprehensive collections management plan addressing issues of emergency preparedness, integrated pest management, housekeeping, long-range storage and long-range conservation.
