COLLECTING INSIGHTS – Registration Open for Spring 2024 Sessions

 

COLLECTING INSIGHTS https://www.eventbrite.com/cc/collecting-insights-spring-2024-3040339

 

Starting in April 2024, experienced Collections Advisor and author of Contemporary Issues in Rare Book & Manuscript Collecting, Spencer W Stuart will facilitate monthly, three-part webinars for Collectors at three major points:

 

• EMERGING (1 – 5 years): https://www.eventbrite.com/e/814454775157?aff=oddtdtcreator

 

04/10 – What is collecting?

05/08 – Implementing a strategy

06/12 – Cataloguing & collection care

 

• EXPANDING (5 – 20 years): https://www.eventbrite.com/e/814463651707?aff=oddtdtcreator

 

04/17 – Defining scope & scale

05/15 – On auctions & trade

06/19 – New collecting focuses

 

• LEGACY (20 years +): https://www.eventbrite.com/e/814437022057?aff=oddtdtcreator

 

04/24 – Planning your collection’s future

05/22 – Where & how to sell

06/26 – Placing your collection in an Institution

 

Through these hour-long sessions, participants will examine case studies relevant to acquiring as well as deaccessioning one’s collection.

 

After this three-part program, no matter where one is in their collecting, participants will emerge with a holistic approach that better positions them for the transformations underway in the Collecting ecosystem.

 

If you have any further questions regarding course content or appropriate webinar registration, please contact Spencer directly at either 604 363 1012 or spencerwstuart@gmail.com
