Fri 18 November 2016, 10:00 – 16:00 GMT
Have a question or comment about the SPECTRUM standard? Throughout 2016 Collections Trust have been working on a revised edition, following extensive consultation with the museum sector, to be published in spring 2017.
Sarah Brown, Outreach Officer for Collections Trust, will introduce draft material from SPECTRUM 5.0; explaining changes and revisions, as an opportunity for attendees to give feedback and contribute to version 5 of the standard. For those new to SPECTRUM or in need of a refresher, this session will also explore the SPECTRUM standard within the context of Accreditation.
Delegates will be encouraged to participate through discussions and activities, and there will be plenty of opportunity for questions throughout, as well as feedback on the draft.
This session will be led by Sarah Brown, Outreach Officer for Collections Trust. Sarah joined Collections Trust in late 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.
