Surveys & Consultations

Preservation and Conservation Needs Surveys
Karen uses the survey method for identifying items and resources when custodians are planning a preservation and/or conservation programs.  The data gathered during the preservation needs or conservation needs assessment, using either a paper form or electronic database, is used as part of a submission for funding such as Heritage Grant or Heritage Lottery funding. Surveys can be either item-by-item basis for small collections or a random sampling technique for larger collections needs assessment. Karen has been involved in several condition and conservation surveys in accordance with recommendations outlined in documents such as PAS 198:2012 Code of Practice for Cultural Collections Management and drawing on other recommended data and survey models. A final Preservation and / conservation needs assessment report is submitted as both a  hard copy and electronic format for the client. A very simple sample survey form is available below.

Collection Care Consultations
Karen can undertake shorter consultations on collection care for small or large collections. This includes a one-day site visit to identify and discuss the specific needs of a collection. A typical report is available at the bottom of this page.
