Help improve SPECTRUM: the UK Collection Management Standard

The Collections Trust is consulting widely to check that SPECTRUM: the UK Collection Management Standard still meets the needs of museums large and small. This will inform the next revision, SPECTRUM 5.0, to be published in 2017.

Taking place now, through the consultation we are looking to involve as many of the Collections Management community as possible to ensure SPECTRUM 5.0 reflects real changes in practice.

What’s happening?

We are consulting widely to check that SPECTRUM still meets the needs of museums large and small. This will inform the next revision, SPECTRUM 5.0, to be published in 2017.

How can you help?

We want to know whether SPECTRUM reflects current practice in your kind of museum, so please take a moment to complete our short online survey. You can also sign up to get more deeply involved in the revision process.

Who will benefit?

SPECTRUM aims to be relevant and useful to museums of all types and sizes, and to everyone who works with collections in any way, so the whole museum community will benefit.
