Registration of the collection at Fygle Museum

25 March 2024

Museum Nord’s collections

Museum Nord is responsible for managing and safeguarding its collections, and therefore the registration of the collections is a very important work for those who work in all of Museum Nord’s 21 museums.

Objects are photographed and registered in the collection database, Primus, with the guidance of the collection management team. The registration work started again in January 2024 after almost two years since the last registration session took place at Fygle Museum. In the beginning, it was mostly cleaning, mapping and planning, but when westarted with the actual registration, many objects were quickly registered.

registration sessions in Spring 2024

The results we achieved in the spring 2024 sessions are very good, showing promising results for subsequent sessions in the fall. The meetings took place regularly once a week, and 134 items were registered in Primus over 8 weeks. It was decided that the registration sessions this spring will temporarily end before Easter to concentrate on summer season preparations. This means that Wednesday 27 March is the last time we meet at Fygle Museum for registration work, but future plans are to start again in the fall.

What happens at the Fygle Museum?

It goes without saying that outreach activities at the Fygle Museum should continue even if registration is paused. The museum is not open to the public, but you must book a guided tour on request (feel free to contact booking booking@lofotr.no).
