The five Departments in the Museum have a dedicated team of curators, conservators and technicians who are responsible for day to day care for the collections. Elements of collections care that cannot be departmentalised such as risk assessment for collections, emergency planning, writing and implementing collections care policies and procedures, environmental motoring, housekeeping and pest management are coordinated by the Collections Care Officer and the Collections Care Assistant.
