value assessment

Risk management starts with a valuation of the entire or partial collections. of course in relation to the institution’s mission. Subsequently, the threats present were determined. This is the start of a step-by-step plan to limit and reduce the risks for the collection. At these small institutions or collections, management starts by drawing up condition reports. Then follows an inventory of the threats (risks) present. This is based on the 10 museum risk factors drawn up by Stephen W Michalski of the Canadian Conservation Institute, the aim is to permanently monitor the conditions.
