Storage on a Shoestring: collections care videos launched

Published on Wednesday 3rd of April 2024

Our Collections Care and Digital teams have been hard at work making make a suite of vocational videos called Storage on a Shoestring. The videos have been developed primarily for staff and volunteers working in small to medium-sized museums, particularly in regional and remote NSW, but they are full of tips and tricks for anyone with precious collections or items they want to protect and store.

A dedicated space for storing collection items is an important part of collection management but for many smaller museums it can be difficult and costly to create and maintain an effective storage space. In these videos, members of our Collections Care team step viewers through the process, from finding the right space and initial setup to choosing the best materials to protect and house individual collection items – all with a focus on achieving the best outcomes in cost-effective and achievable ways.

The videos have been produced as part of an ongoing partnership with Museums & Galleries NSW to deliver onsite workshops and a series of vocational videos for volunteers and staff working in museums across the state. Storage on a Shoestring is the second suite of videos in this series.

We are delighted to launch these today.
