AIM Launches Collection Care Audit Scheme for Smaller Museums
Icon is working in partnership with AIM to enable small museums to undertake a basic, professional collections care audit
The audits will be carried out by an accredited conservator to help smaller AIM members (museums with up to 20,000 visitors a year) identify key issues and priorities for their museum. There are 30 ACRs signed up for this project.
Funded by the Pilgrim Trust, the scheme will support museums to care for their collections more effectively and efficiently in the long-term, to meet the standards required for Accreditation and will give museums the option to undertake an audit before making a full application to the AIM Collections Care Grant Scheme. Applications are now open with a closing date of 31 March. Further information: AIM Collections Care Audit Scheme.
