An Introduction to SPECTRUM 5.0

East Midlands Museum Development logo

Have a question about museum documentation or the SPECTRUM standard?

This session will 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. Together, we will review the SPECTRUM Primary Procedures, required for Accreditation, identifying potential actions for your organisation.

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.
