The Collections Trust has published updated versions of Benchmarks in Collections Care and Spectrum, which can be downloaded for free from its website.

Benchmarks 2.0, a management tool for assessing the level of collection care given to objects on display and in storage, will now be published as an Excel spreadsheet as well as a PDF. For the first time, it also incorporates the PAS197 code of practice for cultural collections management.

Meanwhile, Spectrum 4.0, which provides specification for collections management activity, has been simplified, with the 21 procedures now represented by flow diagrams.

Collections Trust is also publishing both documents on a dedicated wiki page, allowing people to suggest and discuss improvements for further editions.
