June 8 – 10, 2016: The Austrian Registrars Committee hosted the European Registrars Conference at the Hofburg in Vienna. In addition to being a sponsor of this event, we raffled an iPad to the lucky registrar or collections manager. ICEFAT chair, Jonathan Schwartz, draws the winning business card at the concluding ceremony of the conference. And the winner is Christin Wähner of the Museum Ludwig. Use it in good health, Christin!
We have a fantastic gift for the registrar, collections manager and fine arts professional. MITS (The MATERIAL INFORMATION TRANSLATION SITE) is here. Finally, a way to communicate with colleagues worldwide to identify the precise name of a specific archival packing product in the following languages: English, German, French, Italian, Spanish and Turkish.
