Museum Collections Management: A Handbook

Product Description

Collections management is a relatively new term in museums, and yet it is fundamental to what museums do and why they exist. To collect, display, care for, and provide access to museum objects was and remains the core purpose of our museums and galleries.

This book answers all of your questions on collections management, from what it is and why it is important, to how to classify objects, and how to draw up a contract for a shared acquisition. As such, this is the first publication of its kind to act as a comprehensive and practical guide to collections management, and will be of value to the museum professional, the curator of a private collection, and the museum studies student.
