A well-designed housekeeping plan serves more than one function. It not only keeps collections clean
and dust-free, but also allows staff time to regularly monitor the state of the collection. Housekeeping is
a low-budget way to ensure that a collection is well-cared for, while supporting other collections care
activities such as pest management.
