Object identification resources - available to borrow for free!

The SSN Social History Curators Group (SHCG) has designed a series of resources, Object Lessons, to help develop skills and confidence in identifying and caring for core materials found in social history collections (wood, metal, plastic).  Each resource is made up of a loans box of museum objects with an accompanying pack of information which guides the user through the basic principles of materials’ identification and care. The box also contains a selection of key books currently available on the topic.  Find out more here.

The only cost associated with the boxes is in transporting them to and from your venue.

If you’d like to know more or if you want to book a box please e-mail Jenny Brown.
