The book is comprised of eight chapters, including: a history of records keeping in the UK museum and gallery sector; the basics of records management; making a business case for records management; requirements of legislation for records management; how to conduct a records survey; strategy and action planning; how to develop a file plan, retention schedule and records management programme; and a guide to useful additional resources. Gives practical and tested solutions to real world issues Fills a gap in the literature as a handbook in this important sector Provides an overview of the sector as a whole
