Fusion training will consist of two half day sessions; one which deals with Collection Care and the other which deals with Collection Management. Fusion training is designed for participants to attend both sessions.
Session 1: Location and Movement Control
Location and movement control is a Spectrum 5.0 primary procedure and required as part of the museum Accreditation standard. Following this procedure keeps your location records up to date, which is the key to being accountable for your collections. This session, led by Sarah Brown (Collections Trust), will explore the requirements of Location and movement control, review your museum’s system of naming locations and your procedures for recording movement.
Attendees are requested to bring along their organisation’s documentation manual (or at least the procedure for Location and movement control), to share and discuss during the session.
Session 2: Packing and Handling
This session, led by Libby Finney, will look at the practicalities of moving objects and collections and how the packing and handling for moving collections might differ from that undertaken for storing collections. There will be the opportunity to discuss and experience various methods and systems of packing and moving collections and there will be a practical activity in the museum stores.
