Have a question about museum documentation or the SPECTRUM standard?
This session will explore the basics of museum documentation, its importance and how it can be approached by different organisations. We will explore museum documentation with a focus on accountability and Accreditation. Together, we will review the SPECTRUM Primary Procedures, required for Accreditation, identifying potential actions for your organisation.
Over the past year Collections Trust have been working on a revised edition of the SPECTRUM collections management standard, following extensive consultation with the museum sector. This new edition, SPECTRUM 5.0, will be launched in June 2017. Sarah Brown, Outreach Officer for Collections Trust, will introduce key changes within this standard. This workshop will therefore be useful for those new to the topic, as well as those looking for a refresher.
We request that attendees bring examples of their organisation’s documentation and/or documentation procedural manual, for discussion during the day.
Delegates will be encouraged to participate through discussions and activities, and there will be plenty of opportunity for questions throughout.
This session will be led by Sarah Brown, Outreach Officer for Collections Trust. Sarah joined Collections Trust in April 2016. Originally training as a conservator, Sarah has worked in a variety of collections management and care roles across the UK, including National Museums Scotland and Powell-Cotton Museum in Kent.
As part of Collections Trust’s Arts Council England funded Activity Plan, Sarah will be delivering around 100 events across the English regions, developed in collaboration with the ACE Museum Development Network. The programme will be varied, with themes and delivery approach responding to local needs, ranging from digitisation and copyright to documentation planning and backlogs.
