Collections Management: A Practical Guide

Collections Management: A Practical Guide is the essential source of reference for anyone responsible for collection, caring for and recording information about cultural collections and making them accessible to other people. It celebrates the uniqueness of collection organisations within the wider cultural sector by providing a model for organisational development that sets collections at its heart. It is available to purchase in our online shop.

This title aims to provide a method for making sense of the vast array of available information on how to care for, document, develop and provide access to collections. The framework method described in the book is set out clearly in the PAS 197: 2008 Code of Practice for Cultural Collections Management.

This book will be of interest to curators, collections managers, archivists and librarians, both paid and voluntaryt, as well as top managers, trustees and anyone involved in running a collecting organisation. It can be used either as a step-by-step guide to how to establish an integrated Collections Management framework or as an introduction to the best practice laid out in the PAS 197 for those who wish to review their systems against current recommended practice.
