your collections care challenges?

Collections care and management services

Following many years working as a conservator and senior manager, I started my consultancy in 2005 and have since worked successfully with archives, museums, libraries, universities, charities and local authorities all over the UK – see my client list for a full inventory of the organisations I have worked with to date.

I believe that the effective management of collections relies on evidence-based planning and whether you need an estimate of cost for archive packaging, a conservation estimate, digitisation assessment, training plan, review of a service, preservation training or input into a Heritage Lottery Fund project, I will work with you to provide the specific outcome you require.
