I am a firm believer of self help, so you may wish to use the following links which provide invaluable (and free) resources for museums from forward planning to taxidermy and everything in between.

I believe that objects and collections should  inspire museum visitors, volunteers and staff.  However sometimes museums may need some help to share their passion for collections.  As a freelance consultant  I am able to provide collections care advice, project management skills, training or develop your volunteer workforce.  Whether you represent a small independent or a larger museum I can provide a fresh approach.  Further details about my work can be found on this site.
