      Authors: Sebastián Encina
      Abstract: Collections, Ahead of Print.
      The General Facility Report is an oft-used and important document in the museum field. Institutions across the country and across the planet use it primarily to conduct loans between museums. Originally drafted in 1988, the form has seen several revisions over thirty years. In 2019, Collections Stewardship of the American Alliance of Museums formed a committee to revise the form once more. Several employees from various museums with familiarity with the form and its use gathered to edit the GFR. Those edits were presented to AAM and at a conference to solicit feedback, before making the form available to the public. The committee re-organized the form, removed redundant questions, and added more flexibility to the 2020 GFR. The final form maintained much of what made the existing GFR so important, but streamlined to meet current standards. The 2020 GFR is now widely available and ready for use.

  • Hidden Gems: Using Collections in Museums to Discover the Motivations of
           Collectors

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jan Freedman
      Abstract: Collections, Ahead of Print.
      Motivations and drives for collecting have varied through time. From amassing as many examples of different species or artefacts in the sixteenth century to highlighting the importance and strength of the British Empire in the eighteenth century. General trends are seen across historic collections in museums. In an attempt to understand the motivations behind individual collectors, this paper reviews the lives of four mineral collectors from the collections in The Box, Plymouth: Sir John St. Aubyn (175801839), Colonel Sir William Serjeant (1857–1930), René Gallant (1906–1985), and Richard Barstow (1947–1986). Combined they acquired over 4,000 minerals, mostly from the South West of the British Isles. Through examining their lives and collections we may gain insight into their motivations, presenting an opportunity to exhibit new narrative and story-telling alongside the specimens, and in doing so, enriching the visitor experience.

      Abstract: Collections, Ahead of Print.
      It is every museum’s goal to make a difference in their visitors, whether to make them aware of a situation such as climate change, educate about a time period, or inspire visitors to think, to feel, and to observe the world around them. The Werner Wildlife Museum strives to provide visitors these opportunities for personal growth through humanities programming.

  • Visualizing the Future of Collections: How to Make Data Visualization
           Accessible and Useful for Managing Collections and Museums

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jessica Mailhot
      Abstract: Collections, Ahead of Print.
      Data are vital to collections—from managing their holdings to quantifying their impact. Data visualization can be a powerful asset for collections because it translates complex data into something intuitive. In recent years, data visualization (and dashboards specifically) has gradually been applied in collections for various tasks and audiences. However, this frontier is still new, and there are significant barriers making data visualization inaccessible for most collections, including time and resources, programming experience, training materials, and consistent examples. In this case study, I directly address these barriers by designing a suite of collection management dashboards using the free and user-friendly software Tableau Public and tutorials that explain how to use and customize the them. These resources were finalized with the input from a representative pool of the target audience. Everything is freely available online at http://www.CollVizDashboards.com. As museums continue to evolve, data visualization ought to be accessible to all collections.

  • Archives in Neighborhood Businesses: A Case Study on Presence and
           Characteristics

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Bradley J. Wiles
      Abstract: Collections, Ahead of Print.
      This article discusses the potential role archives play in supporting commercial activity in everyday non-institutional settings. It is based around an exploratory case study of archives’ presence and characteristics in neighborhood bars and restaurants in a large Midwestern city. Using unobtrusive field observations and incorporating concepts and frameworks from the business and marketing psychology fields related to authenticity and nostalgia, the study offers insight into the decision-making processes around the use and value of archives, history, and heritage as a business strategy. The findings, based on observations and data gathering at select business locations, indicate extensive use of archival materials in a wide variety of visually engaging formats. The archival materials contribute to a history-informed aesthetic that gives each subject location a distinctive character. This study lays the groundwork for continued inquiry into business utilization and value of archives and recommends further research into the perceptions of business owners and customers on the role of archives in public commercial spaces.

      Authors: Sidney Netshakhuma
      Abstract: Collections, Ahead of Print.
      This study assessed the preservation of cultural heritage materials in selected universities in South Africa with a view of recommending the best preservation method. Particularly, it examined the availability of a preservation policy at the University of Witwatersrand, the types and format of cultural heritage materials held by the University, the major preservation challenges facing the University and to make recommendations for the effective management and preservation of all materials held by the University. The study established that indeed there is a lack of a preservation policy and challenges with regards to the management of cultural heritage in South Africa.

           and Archives Conservation and Audiovisual Preservation

      Abstract: Collections, Ahead of Print.
      In 2018, the University of Kansas (KU) Libraries upgraded from a tired, twenty-year-old basement space to a new, purpose-built conservation lab for library and archives collections. The new conservation lab, which is housed in the special collections and archives library, quadrupled available lab space for its conservators and fleet of student employees. The move afforded Conservation space in the same library as the most vulnerable collection materials. In addition, rooms in the special collections and archives library were repurposed for audiovisual (AV) preservation, creating two new spaces for film and video workflows and upgrading an existing small audio room. This paper will discuss the conservation and preservation lab construction literature and will serve as a practical exemplar of the challenges and successes of the planning process, including lessons learned and unexpected benefits.

  • The Lives Behind the Mesoamerican Archaeology Collection at the Museum of
           Vancouver

      Authors: Cara Grace Tremain
      Abstract: Collections, Ahead of Print.
      The origin of the Museum of Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada, dates to the late nineteenth century—only a few years after the city was formally incorporated. Initially intended to showcase curios and items of interest, among the early donations were objects from various Mesoamerican cultures. Over the years the Mesoamerican archaeology collection grew not from a deliberate collecting strategy, but from chance donations by residents of the city. Not long after the re-focus to a civic museum the collection ceased to grow, and today the collection is consigned to the museum’s storage area. Despite not being of immediate relevance to the museum’s mission, the history of the collection reveals a fascinating insight into the lives of past Vancouver residents and demonstrates the utility of investigating the provenance of previously little-known collections.

  • A Journal of the Plague Year: Rapid-Response Archiving Meets the Pandemic

      Abstract: Collections, Ahead of Print.
      Pandemics challenge the foundations of social life, pushing us apart even as we yearn for human contact. A Journal of the Plague Year: An Archive of COVID-19 (JOTPY) emerged as effort by historians and archivists to document the current crisis. Rapid-response archival projects and two decades of digital archiving work, have provided the framework driving the development of JOTPY’s mission, including (among other things) a commitment to addressing the silences in traditional archives, collecting ethically, and developing robust metadata—a particular strength of JOTPY. Nonetheless, archiving pandemic nonetheless presents a distinctive problem that has suggested an altogether new type of rapid-response archive. More broadly, JOTPY is part of a global effort to document the pandemic and seeks to provide a useful model for other research teams involved in this important work.

  • Participatory Description and Metadata Quality in Rapid Response Archives

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Susan A. Barrett
      First page: 226
      Abstract: Collections, Ahead of Print.
      This article describes the establishment of a participatory, rapid response archive, and an assessment of metadata quality applied by student curators between March and September 2020. A Journal of the Plague Year: An Archive of COVID-19 (JOTPY) was founded to document the COVID-19 pandemic, and is titled after Daniel Defoe’s 1722 book of the same name. As a participatory collection, A Journal of the Plague Year: An Archive of COVID-19 relies on a team of student curators to tag materials. This article summarizes an analysis of metadata tags, and describes strategies that improved the quantity and quality of metadata tags in the collection.
