Collections Information Policy

The Service has recently completed drafting our first Collections Information Policy.  This focusses on the provision of intellectual access to collections, both by users and by staff for management purposes.  It will assist the Service in decision making and prioritising work in a range of circumstances, including:

  • Providing access to the holdings which is balanced with their long-term preservation and legislative requirements;
  • Cataloguing work by staff and volunteers;
  • The submission of funding bids with a cataloguing and information enhancement aspect.

If you would like to comment on the draft Collections Information policy please leave a comment on this blog page, or email  The policy consultation period will close on Friday 13th December 2013.
