CSI: Registrars

Each year, in conjunction with the Western Museums Association Annual Meeting, RC-WR organizes its members to volunteer their professional skills at one of the museums near where the meeting is being held.

This all-day event is known as “CSI: Registrars” (short for Collections Services Initiative).

We tend to volunteer at smaller museums, to help them catch up on projects such as: accessioning, cataloging, condition reporting, rehousing objects or any other work that would benefit from the help of trained professionals. See some of our past projects.

If you have an idea for a CSI project or work at a museum that could use our help, tell us about it.
