About the Author

The Southeastern Registrars Association (SERA) was founded in 1978 to encourage high standards of museum practice and foster professional growth among museum registrars and collections managers in the southeastern region of the United States of America. SERA promotes the exchange and dissemination of information and ideas through professional development opportunities such as educational workshops and publications. SERA membership is open to those who are interested in collections and registration work in the southeastern United States and those who are interested in supporting this work.

From the time the first edition of Basic Condition Reporting: A Handbook was published by the Southeastern Registrars Association, the book has proven to be an invaluable resource to any museum professional who manages collections. This fourth edition contains the latest information on material types, needs, and descriptive terms as well as object handling techniques. It is a 'must have' for book shelves, although it will prove to be so useful that it will not often reside on the shelf but will be in almost continuous use. -- Martha Battle Jackson, Chief Curator at North Carolina State Historic Sites
Everyone doing condition reports should have this at hand. The object handling notes are extremely helpful for even veteran collections managers. -- Angela Kipp, collections manager, TECHNOSEUM, Mannheim, Germany, and co-founder and administrator of Registrar Trek
