    Nick Poole, CEO

  • 2. Our model of Collections Management has 4 key elements:
    People
    Processes
    Systems

    How well these elements are INTEGRATED defines:

  • 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
    We work on a model of Strategic Collections Management which emphasises:
    That all decisions about prioritisation (including prioritisation of Conservation) are driven by an understanding of user need and outcomes, NOT by the object
    That there is no ‘fire and forget’ – managing a collection demands a commitment to ongoing review and improvement
  • 5. INTEGRATION means PHYSICAL SPACES:
    Onsite Conservation labs
    Reader s Rooms
    Corridors
    Stores
    Display Area Monitoring
    Offsite
    Digitisation Studios
  • 6. INTEGRATION means PROCEDURES:
    Acquisition
    Object Entry
    Acquisition
    Loans In/out
    Disposal
    Valuation
    Interpretation
    Use
    Digitisation
  • 7. INTEGRATION means HOLISTIC management:
    Risk Assessment & Management
    Housekeeping
    Integrated Pest Management
    Heat, Light, Humidity principles & controls
    Security & Access Control
    Location and Movement Control
    Documentation and Recording
    Fire Prevention
    Staff Training
    Interpretation
    Health & Safety
  • 8. INTEGRATION means MATERIAL and FORMATS:
    Physical Objects
    Books
    Records
    Digital Assets
    Metadata
  • 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.
    It must be an internalised behaviour, part of the fabric of the institution, rather than a series of projects or crises.
    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.
