Dr Athanasios Velios will discuss the barriers for sharing documentation records alongside the ethical responsibilities of conservation organisations towards the profession and the public. Margaret White will discuss strategies institutions are using to tackle issues of dissociation in the context of major collections projects, such as relocation and digitisation.
