Monument Fellowship Toolkit

A guide to sharing and succession planning for collections knowledge
The Monument Fellowship Toolkit was designed to offer the sector a handy how-to guide to help collections specialists improve how they share collections knowledge and skills, to help museums address succession planning, and to provide a benchmark for good practice for both organisations and practitioners.

It is based on our learning from the Monument Fellowship scheme and our collections work, which challenges and supports museums to make better use of collections and collections knowledge.

The toolkit aims to describe some of the most helpful approaches developed by the fellows and suggest ways in which museums might adapt them for their use. A lot of the approaches suggested here could be used to share knowledge and insight, no matter what area of museum work people are working in.
