Registration Methods for the Small Museum
Daniel B Reibel's Registration Methods for the Small Museum has been the definitive guide to registration methodology since 1978. Covering all aspects of the registration of museum collections, it provides practical solutions for any museum professional in a concise, readable manner. The step-by-step guide begins with developing policy, and then takes the reader through acquisition, numbering, accessioning, documentation, loans, and decessioning - all of the steps necessary to establish and maintain a registration system. The fourth edition brings the classic handbook up-to-date with the electronic registration techniques that are available for today's museum.
