Flash Survey: Estimating Museum Storage Space

Time required: 5 minutes
Deadline: 12 November 2013
Survey link: <URL:>

According to an ICCROM-UNESCO survey (2011), 60% of museums do not
have sufficient space to store their collection, and 25% of storage
areas are so full that it is either difficult or impossible to
circulate within them. CCI workshops on Storage Reorganization have
shown that small- to medium-sized museums struggle with estimating
storage space.

This flash survey is being conducted as part of a paper that will be
submitted to the ICOM-CC triennial conference. The paper will review
and test different published storage space estimation methods to
develop guidance aimed at smaller institutions with limited
resources or access to outside expertise.

If you have ever thought about storage space, your opinion counts!
