Collections, whether objects, books or documents, form the core of museum, archive and library services.

We can provide advice to museums, archives and libraries on how to care for collections, and can provide training on many aspects of conservation and collection care. Our Collections Adviser is responsible for providing advice and developing policy on collections care. She also provides practical hands-on training in areas such as handling and packing museum objects.

We can also offer collections care training such as practical workshops in housekeeping, disaster planning, museum security and care of photographs. For more information contact or call 0300 062 2112.
