Looking after our Collection

We recognise the importance of our municipality's cultural and artistic heritage. As the custodian of a public collection, the City of Port Phillip manages these art and heritage treasures in line with international museum standards and guided by the Port Phillip City Collection Policy.

The officers who manage the collection are trained specialists who coordinate the research and development, preservation, display and interpretation, promotion and access to the collection.

The Port Phillip City Collection is here to:

·       increase the understanding and enjoyment of heritage, history and contemporary art as it relates to the culture of the City of Port Phillip

·       reflect a diversity of views and interpretations of local culture and heritage

·       comprise items which best reflect the cultural development of the City of Port Phillip

·       be recognised for its community relevance and good governance, as an exemplary local government collection

·       attract donations, bequests and other external support because of its professional standing and accessibility

Looking after our Collection involves:

·       providing access through exhibitions, cataloguing and the online database, image reproduction services and research services

·       caring for collection items, and storing them in secure and safe facilities with effective environmental controls

·       minimising risk of collection damage or loss through skilled handling and transport, documenting and digitising copies of the collection and having emergency response procedures

·       maintaining a high degree of integrity through the application of management practices for the selection, custody and care of the collection and compliance with contemporary standards of best practice in collection management

Digitisation

 

In 2007 the City of Port Phillip began working on a project to digitise the Port Phillip City Collection (PPCC). Over 3000 collection items from both the Heritage and Art collections have been scanned or photographed with the aim of providing better public access to the PPCC and to preserve original collection items. Digitising the PPCC is an ongoing project and forms an important part of current collection management processes ensuring the handling and movement of work is significantly reduced. 

Digitisation also means the collection is more accessible providing quality digital images of items for study and public use through our online databases. The Collection can be used for exhibitions and publications through our image reproduction service or loan program.
