SPECTRUM is an open and freely available collections management standard. It is recognised nationally and internationally, as the primary specification for collections management activity in museums. Currently in its 4th edition, it is used by more than 23,000 museums in 40 countries to improve the management, sustainability and use of Collections.
SPECTRUM is developed and maintained by the SPECTRUM Community and brings together the knowledge, expertise and experience of hundreds of museums, from nationals to volunteer run societies.
SPECTRUM Advice factsheets give further advice and guidance on the implementation of SPECTRUM 4.0.
