Collections review and rationalisation at Leicestershire County Council Museums Service

This case study by Collections Trust explores the collections review and rationalisation work which took place at Leicestershire County Council Museums Service from 2011 onwards.

The project focused on the Leicestershire County Museums Service school loans collection, known as Resource Box, a collection of over 2000 un-accessioned objects. It was decided that the collection and loans service would be transferred to the council’s Library Services for Education. A full review of the Resources Box collection was therefore undertaken to ensure that all items transferred were of sufficient quality and relevance.
