Utah Collections Preservation

About Us

The Utah Division of Arts & Museums (UA&M) and Utah Humanities (UH) are working together to establish the Utah Collections Preservation (UCP) program, providing preservation training to humanities collections stewards statewide. Over the next three years, this program will support comprehensive preservation training for collections stewards through webinars, in-person workshops, preservation assessments, and the focused training of seven Collections Preservation Team members. This program is supported by the State of Utah and the National Endowment for the Humanities through a Preservation and Access Education and Training grant.

We at the Division of Arts & Museums are working to make our content as accessible as possible to all. All workshop and webinar materials used will be provided to registrants in advance of the workshop or webinar, in addition to being available online once the training is completed. We use the Zoom meeting platform to host all webinars.

Accommodations can be requested when registering for the webinar or workshop online and will be accommodated with 72 hours notice. Please contact Emily Johnson at to discuss any accommodation requests or questions you may have.
