Museum Accreditation Workshop: Collections - Documentation policies, procedures & plans

Museum Development East Midlands is providing Accreditation refresher workshops for museums.

Facilitated by Collections Trust, this is an online session looking at the role of policies, procedures and plans, and how to write a Documentation policy, for Museum Accreditation.

This session will focus on documentation policy, as part of the requirements for Museum Accreditation (5.1), looking at the different policy areas and their relevant Spectrum policy questions.

The session will explore how to develop a policy, and how this policy can ensure that your documentation provides effective support to your museum’s activities. We will consider themes relevant to the policy such as ethical commitments and legal requirements.

This event will be an opportunity for peer support and learning. Attendees are invited to send questions in advance, and ask questions and discuss during the session.

By the end of the session, delegates will:

• Understand what a documentation policy is and what it should contain.

• Understand how to develop a documentation policy that is fit for purpose.

• Understand the value of a documentation policy to ensure that your documentation supports your museum’s activities, ethical commitments and legal requirements.

• Know where to find more information and guidance.

Before the session:

• Delegates should read their documentation policy, if they have access to one. It will be useful to be able to refer to this during the session.
