Explaining and critically reviewing management procedures such as performance indicators and strategic planning, this book shows how techniques from mainstream management can be used to facilitate a holistic and professional approach to the business of conservation and collection preservation. It offers practical guidance on strategy, quantitative planning and condition surveying, and presents many solutions to the challenges faced by museum staff and conservation specialists.
This new edition takes into account changes such as the arrival of the Heritage Lottery Fund, policies for access and the growing convergence of museums, libraries and archives. It also highlights the advent of digital collections and the use of information and communications technology.

* Learn about professional management information techniques and how to apply them to the preservation of collections
* Covers the latest issues in conservation management, including information on digital collections, to give readers a full understanding of the subject
* An ideal reference which demystifies the issue of 'management'

Review of previous edition:

'Every conservation department should have a copy, and most conservation managers will find themselves dipping into it again and again after they have read it through once.'
