An introduction to the Spectrum standard

Funded by Welsh Government

Suitable for those new to the Spectrum collections management standard or in need of a refresher, this online session will offer a bitesize introduction. We will discuss how a Spectrum 5.0 procedure works, how Spectrum might be applied within your own organisation and briefly introduce the primary procedures for Accreditation. There will opportunities to ask questions throughout.

This session is delivered by Collections Trust, funded by Welsh Government, Culture and Sport Division (C&S) / Adran Diwylliant a Chwaraeon (DaCh). Priority will be given to those who work or volunteer at Accredited museums, or those working towards, in Wales. If you have a question about the session please email events@collectionstrust.org.uk (please note, we are only able to respond in English).

Registration has closed. Preparation for attendees:

    • If possible, read the Spectrum 5.0 introduction
    • Think about how you do things in your museum, referring to your in-house procedural manual if you have access to it, although we appreciate you might not right now. You might also find it useful to have it with you to refer to during the session.
    • At the time of the session, follow the joining instructions we’ll send you when we confirm your registration. The session will be hosted via Zoom. Using your webcam is optional, so you don’t have to tidy up or dress to impress.
