A manual helps a museum to standardise the capture, recording, safekeeping and use of information about museum collections, and should be a set of evolving instructions describing how your museum carries out the Spectrum 5.0 procedures. We know that a lot of you are taking the opportunity to update or develop your manuals at the moment. This session will explore what makes a good procedural manual. Together we will discuss what they should contain, different formats and how you might create a user friendly resource.
Priority for this session will be given to staff and volunteers at Accredited museums, and those working towards, within the West Midlands Museum Development region.
This workshop will be delivered through our Arts Council England funded outreach programme, in collaboration with West Midlands Museum Development.
