Managing Previously Unmanaged Collections online course begins Feb 5 on MuseumStudy.com
Join instructor Angela Kipp for the 4 week online course Managing Previously Unmanaged Collections. Working with a previously unmanaged collection is one of the most challenging and rewarding projects in the career of a museum professional. Challenging because of the variety of issues like leaking roofs, missing documentation and the question as to whether there is actually a floor underneath those piles of objects. Rewarding because of the variety of new discoveries and the skills that are learned, along with the satisfying feeling of getting things done.
The process of securing the collection and making it accessible needs the mindset of a collections manager as well as the one of a project manager. This 4 week course helps you to get a grip on your unmanaged collection by developing a plan to tackle it, defining achievable goals by creating logical exits and finding ways to keep the project going even if you are limited in time, staff and money.
