In January 2018, the Getty Foundation launched The Paper Project: Prints and Drawings Curatorship in the 21st Century. This international initiative supports training and professional development for early- to mid-career curators of prints and drawings.
The Paper Project helps curators navigate the demands of the 21st-century museum, both by preserving traditional skills that have been passed down through generations of specialists and by supporting innovative efforts to make graphic arts collections accessible and relevant to today's audiences.

The Science Museum Group are collecting data regarding how nitrile gloves are used across museum/archive and wider heritage sectors. We have found many of us have looked into sustainable glove solutions and we are collating information in the hope of finding a wider approach to using and recycling, including the use of bio-degradable gloves. This information will be collated and used as part of a presentation and paper for this year's ARA conference.
