Integrated collections care

  1. 1. Integrated Collections Care<br />Nick Poole, CEO<br />Collections Trust<br />
  2. 2. Our model of Collections Management has 4 key elements:<br />People<br />Processes<br />Systems<br />Information<br />How well these elements are INTEGRATED defines:<br />The long-term viability of the Collection AND<br />The net impact of the services for users<br />
  3. 3. FUNDERS<br />USERS<br />POLITICIANS<br />ORGANISATION’S MISSION/PURPOSE<br />STRATEGIC COLLECTIONS MANAGEMENT<br />CARE<br />USE<br />LEARN<br />DEVELOP<br />PEOPLE<br />PROCESSES<br />SYSTEMS<br />INFO<br />CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT<br />ONLINE & OFFLINE EXPERIENCES FOR USERS<br />
  4. 4. In our view, the impact of Collections Care is a function of how well it is INTEGRATED across the full spectrum of organisational processes and systems<br />We work on a model of Strategic Collections Management which emphasises:<br />That all decisions about prioritisation (including prioritisation of Conservation) are driven by an understanding of user need and outcomes, NOT by the object<br />That there is no ‘fire and forget’ – managing a collection demands a commitment to ongoing review and improvement<br />
  5. 5. INTEGRATION means PHYSICAL SPACES:<br />Onsite Conservation labs<br />Reader s Rooms<br />Corridors<br />Stores<br />Display Area Monitoring<br />Offsite<br />Digitisation Studios<br />
  6. 6. INTEGRATION means PROCEDURES:<br />Acquisition<br />Object Entry<br />Acquisition<br />Loans In/out<br />Disposal<br />Valuation<br />Interpretation<br />Use<br />Digitisation<br />
  7. 7. INTEGRATION means HOLISTIC management:<br />Risk Assessment & Management<br />Housekeeping<br />Integrated Pest Management<br />Heat, Light, Humidity principles & controls<br />Security & Access Control<br />Location and Movement Control<br />Documentation and Recording<br />Fire Prevention<br />Staff Training<br />Interpretation<br />Health & Safety<br />
  8. 8. INTEGRATION means MATERIAL and FORMATS:<br />Physical Objects<br />Books<br />Records<br />Digital Assets<br />Metadata<br />
  9. 9. To have the greatest impact, deliver the greatest return on investment and receive the appropriate organisational emphasis, Collections Care has to be integrated across the full spectrum of organisational activities. <br />It must be an internalised behaviour, part of the fabric of the institution, rather than a series of projects or crises.<br />So – our vision of Collections Care is as one of the four integrated pillars of Strategic Collections Management alongside Use of Collections, Interpretation of Collections and the Development of Collections. <br />
