Curation and Collections Management

Curation is defined as the long-term, professional management and care of all objects, materials, and records recovered as the result of a federal or nonfederal archaeological undertaking. As part of the federal government’s effort to protect and preserve the Nation’s cultural and archaeological resources, regulatory mandates (particularly Title 36, Part 79 of the Code of Federal Regulations) require the federal agency to provide curatorial services that manage and preserve collections according to professional museum and archival practice.
