Collections Management have been very active over the last few months with a range of different behind the scenes tasks.

Along with our day to day work on exhibitions, conservation and storage the team has also we have been planning changes to our online Collection Search, and to that end have started a considerable digitisation project. Following the acquisition of objects from the Physics department we have been improving the storage of Scientific Instruments collection.

Future Behind the Scenes updates will provide more detail about these projects.


NEW LOOK FOR CYPRUS DISPLAY

feb2016-main.jpg

We have purchased some new cases from Designcraft, a Canberra based company specialising in museum display furniture, for the new Cyprus exhibition in the Nicholson Museum.

This purchase has increased our stock of modern, state of the art museum display cases and complements the new cases installed in Death Magic last year. The cases are constructed to a very high standard, providing good security and an air tight seal to eliminate dust. The cases incorporate LED lighting which is low heat and energy efficient. The design of the cases is clean allowing the objects on display to shine.

Come along to the new Cyprus exhibition The Sea and the Sky: Ancient Cypriot Art and see our new cases at work.
