This toolkit has been put together as a practical guide to help you review your museum collection. It documents the collections review process carried out by UCL Museums & Collections from 2007 to 2009, and contains instructions and tips on how to adapt our method for use at your own collection.
Here you can find further resources to help with the Spectrum procedure Collections review. For the procedure itself follow this link.
Developed by Museum and Heritage Consultant Caroline Reed, Reviewing Significance 2.0 is an updated version of the Reviewing Significance framework published by Renaissance East Midlands (REM) in 2010. It provides a streamlined introduction to the methodology and some improvements to the original assessment tools – making them even easier to use.
This guide aims to support museums in considering and selecting appropriate methodologies to guide the rationalisation of their collections. It identifies the main issues for museums to consider and provides information about tools and resources available to support the rationalisation procedure.
