|RE-ORG crowdsourcing project launch: Collection storage tips and tricks|
Re-Org We created compartments in a box with cardboard folded in zigzags. Now we can take each pen easily. Also, they dont rub against each other.
ROME.- All around the world, collections in storage are at risk. RE-ORG International is an initiative to assist small museums, libraries and archives reorganize their collections in storage for better access and long-term conservation. Without proper storage, we stand to lose significant vestiges of our memory, identity and our past. RE-ORG encourages the reuse and re-purposing of existing equipment and space. Ideas are out there; sometimes all you need is a little inspiration.
If you work with collections show us your tips and tricks!
Storing collections is not a simple task, and you know first-hand the challenge of having to strike a balance between conservation, institutional and financial concerns. Storage solutions must adapt to the needs of the object but at the same time optimize space usage and costs.
The good news is that it is often possible to repurpose or adapt already-existing equipment or materials, making sensible use of resources.
Many museums through the years and at present have found tonnes of inventive solutions, and ICCROM and the Canadian Conservation Institute (CCI) want to hear about all of them. Be part of a global solution!
Send them one or two photos of your storage solution with a short descriptive sentence that tells:
The type of object
The materials used or re-used to create your storage solution
Why this system is better than before
There are several options for sharing your photos:
On the RE-ORG International Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/reorgstorage
On Twitter, Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #reorgtips
By email: reorgstorage@gmail. com
You have until 31 January 2016 to send your submission. The results will be posted on a Tumblr blog and hosted on the ICCROM website.
