"Knowledge for Collections"
Art for the future: Results of five years of research brought
together online

Over the past five years, the Cultural Heritage Agency of The
Netherlands has carried out up-to-the-minute knowledge within a
research agenda for collections management.  Its nearly 60 studies
are now available online and can be consulted in a visually
attractive, bilingual publication on

Knowledge for Collections can be found at


The publication can be explored in various ways: Showcases offer
magazine-like articles that highlight appealing research, for
example the problem of water-sensitive oil paints, the colors from
Hallstatt textiles or the technical history of works by the 'old'
masters Van Gogh, Mondrian, Govert Flinck.  Under the heading
Expertise the agency's fields of expertise can be consulted by
category, such as 'colour', 'plastics' or 'making and meaning'.  And
for those who are interested in the details of a project, there is
Programmes that bundles all the projects in 5 separate chapters,
like Collection risk management and Value assessment, that offer
comprehensive guidelines for collection management.

A complete overview of recent research on moveable heritage is
available with one click of the mouse, presenting all results in a
detailed and easily accessible manner.
