All museums are faced with limited storage space for their collections and many are facing the daunting task of raising money to build new, larger storage areas. In 2014, the Canadian Conservation Institute in collaboration with the Ontario Museum Association launched a 12-month training initiative called RE-ORG: Canada (Ontario). RE-ORG puts a focus on finding the root causes of storage problems and helps museums reorganize their collections to better use the existing space. Six sites participating in the inaugural edition of RE-ORG met at the 2014 OMA conference, and have since been planning and implementing storage reorganization projects. A panel of RE-ORG: Canada participants will share the outcomes of this year-long initiative, highlighting how each phase of the methodology was applied to their storage areas.
