Center for Collections Care
The Center for Collections Care at Beloit College (C3) provides one-of-a-kind opportunities for hands-on learning and practice for museum, library, archive, and conservation professionals and emerging professionals. Beloit College’s distinctive resources—two campus museums (Logan Museum of Anthropology and Wright Museum of Art), a vibrant archive, historic costume and natural history collections—situated on the residential campus of a small, liberal arts college, provide unparalleled opportunities to gain new skills, network with other professionals, and better prepare for advancement.
The center’s courses are taught by accomplished professionals who are committed to sharing their knowledge and expertise. The center’s residential learning community of practice offers participants the opportunity to connect with and learn from one another. The real impact of Center for Collections Care training is realized when participants return to their home institutions equipped with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to effect positive change. Courses are open to all, but participants do not receive Beloit College academic credit.
Beloit College is home to a well-established and nationally-recognized museum studies program that supports the integration of knowledge with experience, a core component of the college’s mission. The Center for Collections Care program is administered by the Global Experience Office.
