Event description

Description

Join us at our event to celebrate the launch of the new 'Guidelines for the Care of Larger & Working Historic Objects', ABTEM’S project to update and revise the old 1994 MGC 'Standards in the Museum Care of Larger & Working Objects', made possible by generous Museum Resilience funding from Arts Council England.

The new Guidelines are the result of more than four years work and are seen as a consensus of ‘best practice’ that can be used by established museums, heritage organisations, volunteers and private owners of industrial and transport heritage.

We hope that these Guidelines will provide benchmarks for the care of collections and can be used by museums, governing bodies, stakeholders and funders and will help improve standards across the sector.

A free downloadable version of the document will be available from www.abtemguidelines.org and hard copies will also be on sale from the Collections Trust web site.

The launch event will bring together many of the contributors and consultees who have helped create the new Guidelines and will include presentations from project consultants International Railway Heritage Consultancy Ltd and two case studies illustrating some of the issues common to the sector dealt with in the new Guidelines. Lunch will be provided and there will also be the opportunity to see the displays at the Museum of Science & Industry.
