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.

Review:

"...an excellent up-to-date resource for collection managers and other people working and aspiring to work in the cultural heritage sector. It is a book that every museum should have in the office." -- Managing Information "This is an important and useful book. Our copy arrived yesterday and already I've found it useful! It's careful, comprehensive and above all, well-evidenced." -- Dr Samuel J M M Alberti "This book brings together all the fundamentals of collections management in an easy-to-read, accessible format (or guide?) - an essential reference book for all museums." --Diane Gwilt
