This session will explore the benefits of collection reviews and rationalisation, to both the museum and visitor. The session will also introduce different methodologies and frameworks.
Delegates will be encouraged to participate through discussion, and there will be plenty of opportunity for questions throughout. Case studies will also be presented by your colleagues in the North West region.
This session will be led by Sarah Brown, Outreach Officer for Collections Trust. Sarah joined Collections Trust in late 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 teams. The programme will be varied, with themes and delivery approach responding to local needs, ranging from digitisation to documentation planning and backlogs.
