After years under consideration, we have finally re-organized the Registration Department. It took the loss of 1/3 the staff, but we are there.
I will be the Registrar responsible for Museum Collections which includes all acquisitions as well as collections records. It is a large bailiwick to cover but in terms of bringing more procedural consistency as well as having a singular vision of the practice with which we manage our records will be a significant benefit, particularly when our staff has been so dramatically cut. The other 2 registrars will be responsible for all loans. My manager will continue in her admnistrative capacity as well as special attention of special exhibitions.
I am looking forward to the next phase for the ROM's Registration Department. I hope that there are efficiencies gained by consolidating functions as well as improved consistency with our procedures and documentation.
