Accessioning scientific/hands-on exhibits

  • 1.  Accessioning scientific/hands-on exhibits

    Posted 10-23-2015 11:38 AM

    Hello all! We have recently reclassified our Exhibits Department underneath of our established Education Department. Our exhibits are created mostly in-house and demonstrate all kinds of concepts from science, technology, engineering, and math; each "object" is really more of a "machine" of some kind. We have a general inventory/list of existing exhibits, but I would really like to properly set up our collections and accessioning processes. Does anyone have suggestions for accessioning exhibits such as these in an institution like ours?
