Why museums need a well-managed and scheduled collection

The recent theft of several objects from the British Museum has underlined the need for effective collection management among museums, galleries, and other collection-based institutions. While government-sponsored institutions will usually be covered for their losses by the state, private institutions will typically purchase commercial insurance.
