WORKSHOP: Collections Trust – Documentation Procedural Manuals

When: 25 April 2019, 10.00 – 1.00pm

Where: Lancashire Conservation Studios, Preston

How Much: Free

A documentation procedural manual is an evolving series of clear instructions to standardise the capture, recording, safekeeping and use of information about museum collections. Part of the Collections Trust’s work to support the Accredited Museums scheme in the North West, this workshop will describe the documentation system used in a particular museum and communicate that system to all staff and volunteers. It is a requirement of the Museum Accreditation Scheme that Accredited museums have a documentation procedural manual in place.

This workshop will be led by Sarah Brown (Collections Trust), and will explore what makes a good manual, putting participant’s manuals to the test and identifying how they might be improved.
