Collections management involves the development, storage, and preservation of cultural property, as well as objects of contemporary culture (including contemporary art, literature, technology, and documents) in museums, libraries, archives and private collections. The primary goal of collections management is to meet the needs of the individual collector or collecting institution’s mission statement, while also ensuring the long-term safety and sustainability of the cultural objects within the collector’s care. — Wikipedia
