Collections Management Policy

The Collections Management Policy governs all procedures related to the development, management, preservation, and use of Bryn Mawr College's holdings of art works, cultural artifacts, rare books, and historical records, collections that are stewarded by Special Collections. The most recent version was approved by the Bryn Mawr College Board of Trustees on October 2, 2021.

The Collection Management Policy is a comprehensive written statement that:

  • Sets forth the mission of the Bryn Mawr College Special Collections;
  • Explains how this mission is pursued through collection activity,
  • Articulates Bryn Mawr’s professional standards regarding objects in its care, and
  • Serves as a guide to staff in carrying out their collection related responsibilities.
