Most of us are far too familiar with the fact that there is often a gap between the reality and the ideal of collections management. The Technical Leaflets in this bundle are a combination of examining the reality and striving for the ideal. They can help you anticipate and resolve some common issues and explain to others (donors, trustees, and coworkers who are not familiar with collections management) why these issues are significant.
Includes these Technical Leaflets:
TL 94 – Converting Loans to Gifts: One Solution to “Permanent” Loans (1977)
TL 176 – Documentation Practices in Historical Collections (1991)
TL 178 – The Alexandria Archaeology Collections Management Project (1991)
