Creating your collection's inventory

Relle Zimmermann

One of the first challenges to working with a collection is often where to start. The most important thing to do is understand what’s in your collection. To do this, you need to create an inventory.

What is an inventory?

This is a basic list of objects that tells you what you hold, where it is, and a brief description of each object. It can often be really daunting starting this process, so we’ve created a really simple Excel spreadsheet which has all you need. The first worksheet explains what to do and how; the second worksheet is for you to create your inventory.

That’s it!
