About this Event

2 part session:

10:30-12:00 collections review

14:00-15:30 deaccessioning and disposal

Collections review enables a museum to improve its understanding of a collection so that it can be used more effectively. Collections reviews are often the first stage of rationalising collections, which can lead to the deaccessioning and disposal of objects. However, there are many other reasons to review collections. These include understanding the significance of your collections; identifying opportunities to develop under-used collections; getting new insights into what your users find interesting about your objects; and planning future research, use and collections care. In Part 1 of this online session Sarah Brown, Collections Trust Outreach Officer, will review the Spectrum 5.0 Collections review procedure, and signpost to different methodologies and frameworks. Followed by a 2 hour break, Part 2 will be an overview of Deaccessioning and disposal.

Please note there is some preparation for this session:

Read the Spectrum 5.0 Collections review procedure (https://collectionstrust.org.uk/spectrum/procedures/collections-review-spectrum-5-0/)

Read the Spectrum 5.0 Deaccessioning and disposal procedure (https://collectionstrust.org.uk/spectrum/procedures/deaccessioning-and-disposal-spectrum-5-0/)

Think about how you do things in your museum (referring to your in-house procedural manual if you have access to it, although we appreciate you might not right now).
