Re: Best Practice for Organizing Donations of Photocopied Originals


One of the questions raised for me in this discussion and in the process of creating a collections policy, which is probably obvious to most, is regarding the difference between archival collections and the artifact collection. What items fit into “archival” and what fits into “artifact” in a museum? How do the policies and procedures differ? Do i need to write two Collections policies? One for the Archival Collection and one for the Artifact Collection? My goodness, the more I read the more questions I have!
