Collections and Governance: A Practical Guide

£24.99

This title focuses on the implications of different forms of charitable governance and their potential impact on your collections. Because the museums governance landscape is changing so rapidly, this title is especially relevant as many museums that were previously in local authority ownership become charitable organisations. This process is being highlighted as the museums community faces unprecedented cuts with a reallocation of funding from central government.

Instead of a choice between closure and disposal of collections or a reduction of service and staff, with a possible mothballing of collections, there is strong evidence of a third way forward by changing governance structure and opening up new ways of funding services. This title reviews governance and charity law and draws on the experience of devolved UK museums.

Issues covered include:

  • The different types of governance model, including Charitable Trusts.
  • How each model impacts on the ownership, acquisition and stewardship of collections.
  • How to approach to the transition to a new governance model with confidence.
  • Identifying and exploiting new income streams from your collections.

Delivery: You can expect your delivery within 5-7 working days.
