Assembly line registration

21 April 2023

Preserving the collections is one of the core tasks of a museum. At Museum Nord, employees working with collection management are spread across our various museums. It can be a time-consuming and resource-intensive process to carry out registrations of objects alone. Together with Collection Management Officer Jaroslav, our collection management group has begun a series of registration sessions – simply registration on assembly lines.

First up was the Lofoten Museum‘s collection of objects mostly related to fishermen’s objects. Colleagues from the Norwegian Fishing Village Museum, Lofotr Viking Museum and the Ofoten department made the trip to Storvågan. For just over three days, the gang has been gathered to make a concerted effort to address the registration backlog.

Registration on assembly lines in practice

The group divided itself into one on photo, one on editing photos, two on registration in Primus, and one on marking objects.

It was a happy bunch that finished the first round this week. The conclusion is that this was a success, and the methodology worked quite well.
