The University of York has launched a Contemporary Collecting and Disposal survey which is open throughout July.
The survey covers the whole of the UK and everyone involved in collections development decisions relating to objects from the recent past is invited to participate. They are especially interested in hearing from social history curators. The survey does ask questions about your museum and its policies, but it is primarily interested in what you think about contemporary collecting and disposal – so multiple responses from the same museum are welcomed.
The survey is the first stage of a three-stage process that includes a knowledge exchange event to be held in York in September and a report that will be available free of charge digitally and in print later this year.
