Date: Thursday 14th March 2024

Do you have the collections and information you think you have?

This session will explore the Spectrum 5.1 Audit procedure – systematically checking the accuracy and completeness of the information you have about your collections.

At the most basic level, the procedure confirms that your records match the physical reality: you have all the objects you should have, correctly numbered and located where they are supposed to be. We will explore the difference between the Inventory and Audit procedures, discuss the benefits of undertaking regular audits and how you might approach this.

Before the session:

  • Think about how you do things in your museum, referring to your museum’s policy and procedures related to Audit. You might also find it useful to have these with you to refer to during the session
  • Please check you have a working microphone, for discussions
