User menu


The UK's MDA (formerly the Museum Documentation Association) has announced the launch of an online Condition Assessment Tool (CAT). The CAT was developed by the Scottish Museums Council (SMC) and was originally distributed only on a CD-ROM. The MDA have now made the CAT available through their Collections Link website, and hope that it will bring the software to a wider audience, including all types of people who work with collections. According to the Collections Link website, "whether you volunteer in your local community museum or work as part of a professional conservation team in a large service, the CAT should prove a useful and straightforward tool."
