Spectrum 5.0

£49.99

Spectrum gives tried-and-tested advice on the things museums do when managing their collections. Some of these are daily activities, such as moving objects around. Others are occasional, like updating insurance cover. Spectrum calls these activities procedures and there are 21 of them. Of these, nine are the primary procedures. Accredited museums have to meet, or have a plan to achieve, the Spectrum standard for these nine.

This fifth edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect changing practice, such as the digitisation of collections. There is clearer advice on topics such as the difference between cataloguing and compiling an inventory, and the suggested procedures are given both as text and workflows. The appendix describes the information you are likely to need to record during the various procedures.

Spectrum 5.0 (appendix only)

Spectrum gives tried-and-tested advice on the things museums do when managing their collections. Some of these are daily activities, such as moving objects around. Others are occasional, like updating insurance cover. Spectrum calls these activities procedures and there are 21 of them.

As you follow the text version of a suggested procedure in the main volume of Spectrum 5.0 you will notice that the bits of information you might need to record are listed (eg Object name, Entry number, Brief description). Spectrum calls these concepts units of information and lists them in information groups (eg Object identification information).

This appendix to Spectrum 5.0 lists each of the units of information in alphabetical order and gives guidance on how to record each. It also lists them in their information groups. Finally, the appendix sets out the changes to the units and groups in Spectrum 5.0.

You can buy this appendix together with the main volume containing all the procedures. It is cheaper to buy them together than each one separately. Buy the full Spectrum 5.0.

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