This short online session is run in partnership with Collections Trust and will provide an overview of object labelling and marking.

About this Event

This bitesize online session will introduce the basic principles of object labelling and marking, including materials and techniques used for different types of objects. We will also briefly discuss how marking and labelling is linked to the Spectrum 5.0 collections management standard.

There is some preparation for this session:

• Read the Spectrum 5.0 introduction.

• Read the Spectrum 5.0 Acquisition and accessioning

• Take a look at the Collections Trust labelling and marking guidance.

• 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).

The session is for:

Those new to the principles of safe object marking and labelling or in need of a refreshers of the basics.

This session is aimed at museum volunteers and staff in the East Midlands. It will be run on the meeting platform zoom. Spaces from outside the region will only be offered if space is available shortly before the event.
