The fourth edition of Basic Condition Reporting: A Handbook proffers a standard vocabulary for all of the individuals in a museum that may be conducting condition reports. In an ideal world, everyone who does a condition report for an item would be trained in the exact same standards, use the same terminology, and use the exact same form, etc. However, the reality is that even if every registrar, collections manager, and curator in your institution does condition reports each report will be slightly different. Then you throw in every intern, volunteer, or student that may assist and you will find a variety of methods and terminologies that appear. This volume provides a baseline that all of these people can work from so that any person who opens the condition report can understand what the problems on a particular piece include.

MEDIA REVIEWS
From the time the first edition of Basic Condition Reporting: A Handbook was published by the Southeastern Registrars Association, the book has proven to be an invaluable resource to any museum professional who manages collections. This fourth edition contains the latest information on material types, needs, and descriptive terms as well as object handling techniques. It is a 'must have' for book shelves, although it will prove to be so useful that it will not often reside on the shelf but will be in almost continuous use. -- Martha Battle Jackson, Chief Curator at North Carolina State Historic Sites
Everyone doing condition reports should have this at hand. The object handling notes are extremely helpful for even veteran collections managers. -- Angela Kipp, collections manager, TECHNOSEUM, Mannheim, Germany, and co-founder and administrator of Registrar Trek
