Spectrum 5.0 Inventory

London Museum Development logoIn this online session we will review the Spectrum 5.0 Inventory procedure, exploring the minimum level of information required to ensure accountability for your collection. We will discuss how to prevent documentation problems as well as your own procedures for Inventory. Please be aware that there is some preparation required for this session – see below.

Priority for this session will be given to staff and volunteers at Accredited museums, and those working towards, within the London Museum Development region.

The session will be hosted via an online platform that should work with whatever browser you use, and without the need for you to install anything else. To keep the audio as clear as possible we won’t use video, so we won’t judge you if you’re still in your dressing gown. Please join a little early to test your audio.
