Event Details


Summary

This session, led by Sarah Brown, Outreach Officer for Collections Trust, will explore the basics of museum documentation, its importance and how it can be approached to benefit both the organisation and audience. Together, we will look at museum documentation with a focus on accountability, for both organisations actively pursuing Museum Accreditation or simply looking to follow best practice.

Many museums and heritage organisations use collections management software to manage their collections and information, and choosing the right system can be a daunting undertaking. This workshop will also introduce considerations to help choose the right CMS for your organisation.

Attendees will be encouraged to participate through discussion and activities, and there will be plenty of opportunity for questions throughout the day.

We request that attendees bring examples of their organisation’s documentation; entry forms, catalogue record examples etc. to share and discuss.

Learning Objectives

  • The role of Collections Trust
  • An overview of museum documentation, with a focus on accountability
  • Museum standards, including the SPECTRUM collections management standard
  • Considerations for choosing a collections management system

Who is the session for?

Staff and volunteers involved in collections management and museum documentation. Those new to the area or in need of a refresher.

 

(A detailed agenda for this session will be posted in due course.)
