Re: Documenting inventories


When we do our annual cyclical inventory (which is actually just a random inventory), we verify that the artifacts are in the recorded locations, then we update that same location in our CMS with the date and “inventory” as the reson for the update. You could use a similar method after you’ve inventoried each storage section.

Also, if you have an appropriate notes field in you CMS, you could use a standard statement that is copied and pasted into each artifact record that the object was located during the inventory of a certain section on a certain date. (I used this method when I worked for NPS)
