A project of the Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts (CCAHA) with funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services<https://www.imls.gov/>, the Collections Management Policy Toolkit (CMPToolkit) is a free online tool that allows you to build a custom Collections Management Policy for your institution. Developed with help from nationally renowned experts in the collections management field, the CMPToolkit guides users step-by-step through the process to create a policy that is uniquely tailored to your collection and designed to meet professional, ethical and legal standards.
Geared towards small and mid-level institutions without an active Collections Management Policy (CMP) in place, the CMPToolkit aims to simplify the process of developing a CMP and offer professional support for developing this crucial document.
After more than a year in development, CCAHA is excited to announce that the Collections Management Policy Toolkit is officially live!
