Although collections documentatio is of vital importance to museums, many museum staff and volunteers struggle with the use of museum documentation standards. This basic-level workshop will cover what the novice cataloguer needs to know to use the Nomenclature 3.0/4.0 artifact classification system and object naming standard. Information on the Parks Canada classification system and how it is being harmonized with Nomenclature will also be provided.
