Collection Management

Everyone who has completed all steps in the program will get a badge.


COURSE IN SPANISH Sometimes museums are not well aware of their collections: perhaps they have pieces of great patrimonial importance, but the absence of records and basic information about their collections hinders good service. Cultural heritage can be lost due to poor organization and limited service and placement opportunities due to the lack of a registration, inventory and cataloging plan. This course will be useful to advance in these processes, which will allow you to identify and document the objects with which your museum holds.

I really enjoyed getting to know the manufacturing techniques of feathers!
All the knowledge shared in the classes was very good.
