    Syllabus

    The unit is an introduction to collection management. Museum collections, large or small, require techniques of control, recording and maintenance. These techniques are required from the moment an object is identified for acquisition, along the chain of possession into the collection, allowing for valuation, storage and access (for example, exhibition, loans, community and research access). The role of collection management in association with departments, such as conservation and exhibitions, is also included. A case study approach is used.

    Learning Outcomes

    On completion of this unit, students will be able to:

    1. understand the key issues associated with collection management systems;

    2. research and generate ideas for exhibition development.
