A workshop in partnership with the Collections Trust.
Suitable for those new to the Spectrum collections management standard or in need of a refresher, this online session will offer an introduction to Spectrum 5.0.
We will discuss how a Spectrum 5.0 procedure works, how Spectrum might be applied within your own organisation and briefly introduce the primary procedures for Accreditation. We will also look at the difference and relationship between plans, policies and procedures.
There will be opportunities to ask questions throughout. You will also be invited to submit questions in advance.
By the end of the session, delegates will:
- Understand what the Spectrum standard is, and how it might be applied within their museum
- Understand the role of the Spectrum standard in relation to museum Accreditation
- Understand the difference and relationship between plans, policies and procedures
- Know where to find more information and guidance
Before the session:
- Read the Spectrum 5.0 introduction https://collectionstrust.org.uk/spectrum/spectrum-5/
- Think about how you do things in your museum, referring to your in-house procedural manual if you have access to it, although we appreciate you might not right now. You might also find it useful to have it with you to refer to during the session.
Priority will be given to delegates to delegates participating in WMMD’s Banish the Backlog cohorts, but it is also open to museums in the West Midlands which are Accredited or officially Working Towards Accreditation. Maximum two delegates per organisation.
The webinar will be live captioned through StageText and MyClearText.
