This issue is on the theme ‘Ethics’ and features articles that explores the ethical issues facing collection custodians and, in some cases, challenge historical attitudes and underlying prejudices.

Other items in this issue are a recap of the very successful Agents of Change national conference and an outline of the objectives of the AICCM’s Collection Environment Survey. There are our regular columns of Museum News, Apps & Online and Branch News that will bring you up-to-date with sector info.
