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 joanna.low@brighton-hove.gov.uk to register your interest.

Are you an example of good practice in the Care of Larger and Working objects?

ABTEM (The Association of British Transport and Engineering Museums) is pleased to inform you that they ave now completed the first draft of the revised Guidelines for the Care of Larger and Working objects.

The next stage of the project will be to gather a selection of detailed case studies that will be used to illustrate key processes described in the text.  These will be supplemented by shorter illustrated examples (a picture of an object, conservation process or other activity, accompanied by a brief caption).

Since the project launch, ABTEM have put together an initial list of potential case studies and are now looking to expand this list according to the requirements of the draft document (see Appendix).

If you are interested in submitting a case study, please complete the highlighted fields of the enclosed form. At this point, they will consider all submitted case studies and make appropriate selections for use as exemplars and illustrations.

You may submit more than one Case Study. Please use a separate form for each one.

Once you have completed the form, please send as email attachment to Efstathios Tsolis together with any images attached as separate files.
