Oops!  I realise I haven’t mentioned the Code of Practice for Cultural Collections Management (PAS 197: 2009).  The Code is relevant to libraries, archives and museums, and offers a strategic framework for senior managers on collection management, development, information (i.e. cataloguing/metadata) and care.

PAS 197 underlies the new archives accreditation standard, which is why I have been investigating it.

You can get hold of the Code from British Standards Online.  NB If your organisation doesn’t subscribe to BSOL, I wouldn’t necessarily rush to buy a copy as they are expensive – take a look at what’s been written about it to see how relevant the Code is to you.
