Susanna manages the collections management team within Curatorial and Conservation Services and is the project lead for Project Reveal. She is currently reviewing and refining the collections management processes at NTS, managing the development of the collections management database.

Before joining NTS in September 2014, Susanna worked as a consultant providing guidance and training to museums and heritage organisations on collections management and documentation. She is the co-editor of the SPECTRUM - UK Collections Management Standard and author of Collections Management – a practical guide. She started her museum career in curatorial roles at the University of St Andrews and the National Museums of Scotland, followed by seven years at Museums Galleries Scotland managing the UK Museum Accreditation Scheme for Museums in Scotland.

Joe's role as Collections Information Officer involves working with staff and volunteers across the NTS to keep the object database (Adlib) up to date, and helping to expand this database. This includes keeping track of objects that move between Trust properties, and enhancing records to make them easily searchable and accessible. He also assists with collections management procedures, such as property inventory checks and audits, and organising a monthly Loans, Acquisitions and Disposals meeting

Joe graduated from the University of Edinburgh with a degree in Linguistics, and before joining NTS worked for a consultancy delivering a public sector database project. He also has a background in cataloguing music libraries as well as an interest in rare musical instruments, so is particularly interested in the Trust’s musical collections.
