As museums are under growing pressure to display more of their collection, and as collections continue to expand, storage facilities become active working spaces that are more than a repository. This session will explore the logistical, financial, and staffing challenges that go along with this new model for storage, along with creative ways that collections managers are addressing institutional demands. The presenters will examine how transforming storage areas into dynamic spaces can reap a host of benefits for an institution’s goals.
