Event description

Description

Collections Review and Rationalisation training day

Trainer: Sarah Brown, Outreach Officer, Collections Trust.

What will be covered?
Collections review and rationalisation enables a museum to improve its understanding of a collection so that the collection can be used more effectively.

This session will explore the benefits of collection reviews and rationalisation, to both the museum and visitors. The session will also introduce different methodologies and frameworks, and approaches to planning a collections review. We will also look at the ethical and legal considerations of deaccession and disposal, as one of the potential outcomes.

Delegates will be encouraged to participate through discussions and activities, and there will be plenty of opportunity for questions throughout. Please bring any relevant examples with you to share, for example existing review methodologies and plans.

Sarah Brown, Collections Trust, will also introduce the new Collections Review procedure from the recently updated Spectrum standard, Spectrum 5.0.

Who should attend?
Staff and volunteers involved in collections management; particularly those involved in planning and/or delivering a programme of collections review and/or rationalisation.

Full details of the day will follow in due course, but please book now to avoid disappointment. Places are allocated on a first come first served basis.
