Title page from a document that says 'People-centred Cataloguing, Kathleen Lawther'. In the background in lighter text are the names of different roles people play in the museum, including makers, donors, curators, fixers, researchers, hunters, typists, subjects and users.

Created as part of my Art Fund Headley Fellowship with the Powell-Cotton Museum, this resource explains the approach to cataloguing which I took during the project. The publication includes suggestions and case studies for how museums might take a more people-centred approach to their collections documentation work.
