Collection Surveys

One of the first steps in carrying out a conservation campaign for a collection or a historic cemetery is to better understand the objects and the site – through a collection survey. Surveys can be broad or specific, depending on the size, nature and condition of the collection but should minimally document basic information, such as history of the collection, object types, material types, general object conditions, environmental conditions, and safety issues. The document should provide an informed overview of the collection, a guideline for fundamental preservation needs, establish realistic priorities for the objects and site, present associated budgets and identify need for further investigation.
