Why should you use this standard?

The UK’s museums, archives and libraries hold some of the world’s richest and most diverse cultural collections. These collections are used to educate, to inform and to entertain. They provide a rich resource for research and innovation.

Museums, archives and libraries are responsible for striking a balance between the preservation of collections and the provision of access to them, so that they can continue to be accessible for future generations.

A new generation of practitioners are bringing new expertise to cultural collections management, in areas such as project and programme management, knowledge management and fundraising. Driving this multi-disciplinary approach is an understanding that the sustainability of collections is a holistic issue.

PAS 197 sets out a series of recommendations relating to management and good practice in the field.
