As an Accredited Museum, no. RD 1512, conservation and collections management is integral to STORIEL’s work. There are a number of policies and plans in place which guide this work. They include our Collections Development Policy which guides us when deciding what we do and do not accept into the collection. Our Collections Care and Conservation Policy provides guidance, alongside STORIEL’s Documentation Policy, Documentation Plan and Procedures Manual as to how STORIEL documents and deals with ongoing management of collections.
As a small team, we do not have designated conservators. We therefore use specialists that are listed on the ICON conservation register when we need to undertake specialist conservation work.
