Victorian Collections Introductory Cataloguing Workshop

Mon 22 May, 10:30 am - 2:30 pm

This workshop provides an introduction to the principles of collections management and catalogue documentation. Participants will learn how to best physically manage their collection items as well as digitally document them using Victorian Collections: a free, web-based and easy-to-use collections management system. 

Topics covered in this workshop include: 

  • Introduction to the VC system 
  • Basic account administration 
  • Cataloguing practical session* 
  • Introduction to collections management, preservation and access 

*Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop and an object from their collection to catalogue; however, if you do not have access to your collection or are not associated with a collecting organisation, we will provide you with a document from which to work. 

Victorian Collections workshops offer a relaxed and open environment and cater for participants with any degree of museum and computer literacy, as well as ongoing support for small to medium-sized collecting organisations.
