Managing cultural property

Nick Poole, the CEO of the UK's Collections Trust, was a keynote speaker at last year's National Digital Forum. Here are the slides from a recent workshop on managing cultural property.

What I find interesting - and useful - about the slides is that Poole is advocating an end-to-end process. You need to be thorough when acquiring items for your collections. You need to be proactive with assessing whether any items in your collections might be subject to calls for repatriation or reclamation. And should these calls be made, you need to be decisive and open. Smart and practical advice.
