How to audit your collection with Vernon CMS
It is common for museums to adhere to minimum standards of care and best practice for collection documentation. These are often defined by national agencies and cover legal responsibilities, museum accreditation processes and governance structures. Vernon CMS adheres to all of the processes covered by the SPECTRUM collections management data standard. The SPECTRUM standard includes several processes with specific reference to collection auditing.
Case Study: Waddesdon Manor – Trade Card Collection
The founder of Waddesdon Manor, Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild acquired a collection of printed paper ephemera relating to commerce in 1891. The collection includes over 700 trade cards (early shop advertisements). This case study looks how Waddesdon Manor made the best use of Vernon CMS to catalogue and share information about this collection.
