MAP and CAP: Assessment Programs for Small and Mid-Sized Museums
Are you looking to improve your museum’s collections care, organizational management, or community engagement, but don’t know where to begin? Do you have a long list of things you’d like to accomplish, but struggle with limited staff and resources? Assessment programs like MAP (Museum Assessment Program) and CAP (Collections Assessment for Preservation) can help by providing a road map to help you distinguish your critical needs from less important tasks.
This webinar will introduce participants to the Museum Assessment Program (MAP) administered by the American Alliance of Museums and the Collections Assessment for Preservation (CAP) programadministered by the Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation. Benefits, similarities, and differences between the two programs will be explored to help you understand whether one (or both) might benefit your institution.
