The Registrar Hour
Museum Professionals helping Museum Professionals
This website is designed to host online resources for museum registration and collections management professionals, who are currently dealing with the COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2 novel coronavirus) pandemic situation.
The online resources listed here are publicly available. They are consolidated here for easy access as reference, resulting from a weekly zoom call with registrars and collection management professionals from all over the world. The discussions on these calls have been about how we are collectively dealing with the effects of the current pandemic within the museum industry and specifically within our profession. The resources reflect the key topics registrars and collection management professionals on these calls have been discussing.
Disclaimer: All information here has been gathered from a variety of public resources. The creators of this site do not endorse any one particular source or view over another. This is a platform designed to share as much information related to registration and collections management issues during the pandemic as possible. It will continue to be updated and we welcome additional sources for inclusion.
