Documentation policy, procedures and plans.

Confused about the difference between documentation policies, plans and procedures?

In this bitesize session Sarah Brown, Outreach Officer for Collections Trust, will go through the Accreditation requirements for documentation policy (5.1) and the Spectrum primary procedures (5.2) including Documentation planning, signposting to further guidance and examples online. 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.
