Archival Services For Architectural Fragments

Collection design is a hot topic in the museums world, and how to make the most economical use of storage space is a major consideration. Architectural fragments can be transformed from storage-hogging Cinderellas into gallery princesses using Dr Samuel’s skills. By providing detailed statistical information on the existing collection, Dr Samuel can help decisions be made on long-term retention of architectural fragments, as well advising on the best methods of storage and conservation. By rationalising storage, museums free up space, which may be used for new purposes such as galleries, shops, cafés and ‘active archives’.
