Collection Management Seminar

Posted by C Lowry on Nov 15, 2012 9:36:37 AM


What on earth is a Permanent Loan? Loans In review and the challenge of dealing with old loans.



Friday 23rd November 2012, 2.30pm-4.00pm




Flett Lecture Theatre, NHM, South Kensington



Who? Speaker: 

Lee Murrell, Imperial War Museums, London



What’s it about?

IWM London is now well into its Loans Review Project. The output has already improved how loans are administered and led to the creation of my role. I’ll talk about the aims and methods of the review, some of the problems that came to light and look at some of the ways that it is integrated with other museum projects.



Who should come?

The seminar is open to all members of the museum who are interested in getting involved or learning more about a Review of Loans In. It is suggested that the following staff will find the seminar most useful.


Science Group: All senior departmental managers & collection management staff.


Public Engagement Group:  Any staff who work with and use collections or manage staff who work with collections.



We also welcome colleagues from other institutions who would find the seminar of interest. There is no booking fee and only large parties need to notify the organiser for catering purposes.



Tea and coffee will be available in the seminar room lobby area after the talk.


Suggestions for seminar speakers are always most welcome. Please contact the organiser Clare Valentine ( )
