MDA announces the publication of the Condition Assessment Tool (CAT) on 
the Collections Link website at:

http://www.collectionslink.org.uk/conserve_objects/cat

The CAT is a downloadable database developed by the Scottish Museums 
Council (SMC), designed to enable heritage organisations to record 
information about the condition of objects in their collections and 
prioritise conservation work or improve collection care. SMC's user 
guidance notes and a comprehensive set of supporting fact sheets are also 
available to download alongside the database.

The CAT was designed to be used by people with a wide variety of 
experience and skills, and who work with all types of collections, from 
local community museums to professional conservation teams in a large 
service. Once downloaded, users are able to adapt the database to ensure 
that it suits the specific needs of their own organisation and collections.

Gill Findlay, Collections Development Manager at SMC, commented, "Museums 
in Scotland have already found the Condition Assessment Tool to be an 
extremely effective and easy to use resource which helps them to achieve 
best practice in the care of their collections. We are delighted to be 
working with Collections Link to make it available to the wider heritage 
community."

Peter Winsor, Collections Link Project Director, commented, "The CAT 
database is an important addition to the range of conservation and 
collections care resources already available through Collections Link. It 
complements the [Benchmarks in Collection Care] assessment tool that is 
also available as a download from the website, and will be invaluable to 
collections managers planning the long-term care of their collections."
