Training in registering objects

19 May 2022

Prevalence of objects is one of several important tasks that museums have. This week there is training in registering objects in Narvik.

Part of this job consists of registering the museum objects, where they are photographed, tagged and registered in a database.

In Museum Nord, Jaroslav Bogomolov is responsible for ensuring that this is done. This week he is trained in registration work by one of our newest collection managers, Catharina Bøhn Øien. She works in the Vågan department and has made the trip to Narvik for a training session. There is a lot of new things to familiarize yourself with, including setting up the studio and setting up aids and cameras. For this they get good help from photographer Erlend Sandvoll at Narvik Museum.
