WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

Cataloguing and records management is essential as it is the foundation of any collection. When an art gallery or museum maintains accurate records management, it leads to stronger collections, exhibitions, and programming. During this workshop the cataloguing and records management skills of participants will be examined, strengthened, and improved.

Participants will gain knowledge, expertise and information on cataloguing best practices, how to transform records from paper to digital, and tips on choosing the records management database system for their collection.


WORKSHOP TOPICS:

1. The Fundamentals: this discussion will touch upon the foundations of cataloguing artworks and artifacts in a gallery setting and the best practices for maintaining accurate records. This Topic will include:

  • The importance of proper documentation
  • Following proper naming protocols
  • Creating accurate records
  • Using the correct terminology when describing artifacts

2. Updating Old Records: this section will examine how institutions can update their older cataloguing records into the best practices of today. During this discussion participants will gain knowledge on how to best integrate past practices into modern times.

3. Understanding software and databases: participants will gain insight on how to construct a database that best suits their institutions' needs. Participants will learn of the current software available for cataloguing and records management and how to pick the most appropriate for their needs.
