Responsible for the management of all artworks held by National Galleries Scotland, the Collections Management department looks after the documentation, transportation and storage of our artworks along with providing all support for our busy public programme.
With regret, National Galleries of Scotland will not be considering any new requests for loan during our closure period. This includes additional works requested to supplement already agreed loans. The earliest National Galleries of Scotland Loans Committee at which new requests will be considered will be in June 2020. We look forward to being in touch with you once our activities resume.
Collections Management Policies
The National Galleries of Scotland has statutory responsibilities to care for, preserve and add to the objects in our collections, and to ensure that they are accessible to the broadest possible public. The National Galleries of Scotland Collections Management Policies set out the professional, legal and ethical standards by which we achieve this. They underpin all our collections activities and guide our decision-making, and will be formally reviewed every three years to ensure that they all remain relevant and up to date.
