NMS plans further work to support collections across Scottish museums 7/12/2018

National Museums Scotland has been developing a skills-sharing programme, using its in-house expertise to offer specialist curatorial support and training to staff in museums across Scotland. The first pilot project ‘Old Tools, New Uses’ surveyed domestic technology collections, a second trained a curator to review Pacific Collections. Now three more projects are planned for 2019 working with museums across Scotland to review ancient Egyptian, east Asian and natural sciences collections. Results will include better storytelling about highlight collections and the ability to integrate collection items from all over Scotland (particularly in natural sciences) into international research initiatives.
