Description

An introduction to SPECTRUM 5.0 - 12th June 2017

Arrival from 10am, start 10.15am - 4pm finish

Have a question about museum documentation or the SPECTRUM standard?

Over the past year Collections Trust have been working on a revised edition of the SPECTRUM collections management standard, following extensive consultation with the museum sector. This new edition, SPECTRUM 5.0, will be launched in June 2017. Sarah Brown, Outreach Officer for Collections Trust, will introduce key changes within this standard. This workshop will therefore be useful for those new to the topic, as well as those looking for a refresher.

What will you learn?

This session will also explore the basics of museum documentation, its importance and how it can be approached by different organisations. We will explore museum documentation with a focus on accountability and Accreditation, reviewing the SPECTRUM 5.0 Primary Procedures, required for Accreditation, and identifying potential actions for your organisation.

Learning Objectives:

  • The role of Collections Trust

  • Collections Trust resources

  • Basic museum documentation

  • The SPECTRUM standard within the context of Accreditation

  • The SPECTRUM Primary Procedures

  • Using and applying SPECTRUM within your organisation, including documentation procedural manuals.

  • Introducing changes and updates to the SPECTRUM standard.

We request that attendees bring examples of their organisation’s documentation and/or documentation procedural manual, for discussion during the day.

Delegates will be encouraged to participate through discussions and activities, and there will be plenty of opportunity for questions throughout.

Trainer information

This session will be led by Sarah Brown, Outreach Officer for Collections Trust. Sarah joined Collections Trust in April 2016. Originally training as a conservator, Sarah has worked in a variety of collections management and care roles across the UK, including National Museums Scotland and Powell-Cotton Museum in Kent.

As part of Collections Trust’s Arts Council England funded Activity Plan, Sarah will be delivering around 100 events across the English regions, developed in collaboration with the ACE Museum Development Network. The programme will be varied, with themes and delivery approach responding to local needs, ranging from digitisation and copyright to documentation planning and backlogs.

We look forward to seeing you there!
