The AAM Getting Started sessions present basic and practical information on selected topics that have cross-functional appeal. This session provides a basic guide to help your museum create a collections plan, the first step to gaining intellectual control over the collections and ensuring that you have the appropriate staff and resources for collections care. Topics covered include building an intellectual framework, writing the plan itself, the planning process, and the challenges of museum politics. The format includes discussion, activities, and resources.
