 Welcome to the website for From Here to There: Museum Standards for Object Handling, an educational training video for museum professionals.


See What's New:  Finally the story behind the story is done.  Read about the making of the video on the Behind the Scenes pages.

I know that instructors (like me) are always looking for new resources to help present their lessons. Check out the video trailer on the About the Video page, to see if it is right for your class!  
Training new museum professionals has always been important to me; it's the primary reason I made "From Here to There... I show it to my graduate Collections Care students to demonstrate proper museum handling techniques and to give museums a new resource for staff training. If your Museum Studies program is interested in streaming From Here to There to an online Collections Management class as Johns Hopkins University and other schools with distance classes do, contact me: dixneilson@*                                                                                                                                * If you just want to show the video to your bricks and mortar classes no special arrangements are necessary, but be sure to purchase your copy soon. We are always pleased to help train our next generation of Museum Professionals.    


Small Museum Rates:  Apply to all National Park Service Offices and those institutions that are classified as small museums (either in staff size or budgets). Quite a few staff members of those small museums have written to say that they appreciate the chance to order From Here to There... at a reduced rate.  We know it is difficult to make ends meet, especially as our budgets seem to get smaller and smaller.  Click the price button on the Ordering Information page to take advantage of great savings now.
