Collections Policy

Document Details

The Museum Act [SBC 2003, c. 12] mandates the Royal British Columbia Museum and Archives to "secure, receive and preserve specimens, artifacts and archival and other materials that illustrate the natural or human history of British Columbia," and defines "collection" as "the specimens, artifacts, archival material and associated records [that are] kept by [the Royal BC Museum and Archives]."

The purpose of the Collections Policy is to establish guidelines for the growth, management and care of and access to the specimens, artifacts, archival materials and associated records ("items") that have been approved for accession by the Royal BC Museum and Archives' Collections Committee.
