Collections, whether objects, books or documents, form the core of museum, archive and library services.
CyMAL and Collections
We can provide advice on how to care for collections, and can provide training on many aspects of collection care. Our Collections Adviser is responsible for providing advice and developing policy on collections care. She also provides practical hands-on training in areas such as handling and packing museum objects.
We can also offer collections care training such as practical workshops in housekeeping, disaster planning, museum security and care of photographs. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 0300 062 2123.
Conservation ensures that the heritage of Wales is preserved for future generations.
See the Conservation page for more information regarding conservation, and how we support conservation projects in Wales. This includes a summary of projects jointly funded with the National Manuscripts Conservation Trust (NMCT).
Emergency planning is an important preventive conservation measure. Events can happen which impact on the ability of a museum, archive or library to function as normal. Collections and services can suddenly come under threat and the organisation will be expected to react efficiently and effectively.
It is important for all collecting organisations to be thinking long term and be prepared for any eventuality that threatens the visitors, the staff, the collection and the normal operation of business.
