Published on

Speakers: Ben Sullivan, Head of European Operations, KE Software and Mr David Smith, Collections Manager (Petrology, Ocean Bottom Deposits and
Building Stones) and Departmental Loans Manager, Mineralogy Department,
Natural History Museum

This presentation shows how collection data can be presented visually so that staff
and management can monitor the ongoing care of the collections. The visual aids help
justify to management and funding bodies about the need for good collections
care practices.
