Please note: this course has been organised by Suffolk’s Museum Development Manager for new museum trainees in the county. Please be aware that as such, the course will be aimed at new starters in the museum sector – or those wanting to refresh their skills and knowledge. The majority of places have already been allocated to trainees, but we are very pleased to be able to offer the remaining few places to the wider SHARE community.
This course provides an introduction to the basic principles of museum documentation and the benefits of good documentation practice. Topics covered include SPECTRUM, object entry, accessioning, marking and labelling, cataloguing and indexing, location and movement control, loan and retrospective documentation.
Collections Trust paper-based documentation resources are referred to throughout, but the course is also applicable to computerised systems.

Morning refreshments will be available but please make your own arrangements for lunch.
This event is fully booked.
