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 policy provides a framework of professional standards to be used to establish guidelines for managing the collections.
The Collections Management Policy is in the process of being revised. The existing policy was approved by the Board of Trustees in 2014. A significantly revised version was approved by the College Collections Committee in April 2021, and will go to the Board of Trustees in the Fall for review and approval.
