Security Review 'sharing day'
Accredited museums must obtain expert and objective security advice for collections at least every five years and plan to implement any recommendations. We are interested to find out if there are museums in west Kent who are due a review of their security arrangements and would benefit from a 'sharing day' with a consultant security advisor to help meet the Accreditation requirement. Please contact email@example.com to register your interest.
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.
