Assessing Risk in your Collection

Assessing Risk in your Collection

Performing a risk assessment is a useful exercise that should place you and your organisation in a better position to care for and safeguard collection material. Each time you catalogue an item, carry out a condition report, or change an item’s storage or display arrangements, make sure that you conduct a risk assessment too.This information sheet, produced by Victorian Collections, will guide you through some key steps to follow when performing an assessment for a single collection item.
