The Spectrum standard has been revised and republished several times since the first publication in 1994. This version is Spectrum 4.0, published in March 2011.
Spectrum 4.0 describes 21 collections management procedures in workflow format, along with the policies and minimum standard required to meet each procedure. The standard is free to download; all we ask is that you agree to our licensing conditions.
Spectrum 4.0 has now been superseded by Spectrum 5.0 – launched in September 2017.
