Beth Heller Conservation offers consultation and implementation regarding a variety of preservation needs for private collectors and small libraries, archives and museums, including:

  • Inventory
  • Rehousing
  • Assessment of collection-storage environments
  • Item-level and collection-wide condition surveys
  • Grant-writing
  • Collection Assessor for the Collection Assessment for Preservation (CAP) Program
  • Combining my first career as a psychotherapist, I also offer preservation management coaching sessions to those in leadership positions in libraries, archives and museums. Sometimes it helps to talk with someone outside your organization who understands the challenges and can see the opportunities.  Please note that I am not currently licensed as a psychotherapist and am not offering psychotherapy services.
