Survey: Food in museums and the threat to collections

The Conservation Committee of the Society for the Preservation of Natural History Collections are doing a survey on food regulations in museums due to a lack of documented recommendations and the trend in providing food as part of improving audience service and engagement. It generates significant revenue for an institution while posing potential threat to some collections.  

Through international collaboration, it is hoped to develop a set of guidelines that institutions can use to protect vulnerable collections while supporting food services. Participation in the questionnaire will help develop an understanding of the current condition of food management within museums and institutions on an international scale. 

International responses are invited. Deadline 1 June, 2014
