AuthorAnne Fahy
ISBN: 0415112834
Description: Collections management is a fundamental apart of museum work, yet recently the poor state of museum collections has been highlighted in terms of physical care and documentation. As a response, there has been increased emphasis on the development of standards for collections management. Anne Fahy brings together recent papers highlighting some of the major issues affecting collections management in the 1990s concentrating particularly on eight aspects. The book identifies the main issues relating to collecting and to the disposal of collections and discusses why museums should develop appropriate documentation systems. The book also examines the status of research within museums, the various sources of advice relating to security and also addresses the basics of insurance and indemnity. Collections Management is an invaluable and very practical introduction for museum professionals. It also provides up-to-date information about initiatives and issues for anyone involved in collections management.
