An Introduction to Spectrum 5

What will be covered?

Have a question about the Spectrum standard? Over the past year Collections Trust have been working on a revised edition of the Spectrum collections management standard, following extensive consultation with the museum sector. This new edition, Spectrum 5.0, was launched in September 2017. Sarah Brown, Outreach Officer for Collections Trust, will introduce key changes to both content and presentation, including two new procedures.
