Collections Management

how I might be able to assist you…

I have over 25 years experience of working with collections, across the archives, libraries and museum sectors. Throughout my career, my roles have always placed emphasis on making a visible improvement to the service as a result I can provide advice and support on the following aspects of collections management.

  • Survey of collection(s) to determine the resources required to catalogue it to national standards – for example for the Archives Revealed Scoping grantsĀ 
  • Sorting personal or business papers and providing guidance on what should be retained based on its legal, evidential or historical value
  • Develop a cataloguing prioritisation framework to inform future collections work
  • Getting the most from your collections management system – I have experience of Axiell CALM and KE Emu and Artefactual’s AtoM systems
  • Defining a digitisation programme to make key resources available online
  • Finding new audiences, taking a fresh look and suggesting new approaches to consider
  • Procuring and implementing a collections management system
  • Reviewing collections policies ahead of Archives Accreditation application
