The American Association of Museums recently recognized College of Eastern Utah Prehistoric Museum's documentation procedures.

After awarding the CEU facility re-accreditation, AAM officials identified 10 of its formal documents as excellent examples for similar institutions to follow.

The documents included the local museum's mission statement, business and institutional plans, emergency procedures and collections policy.

"It is a tremendous honor for the College of Eastern Utah Prehistoric Museum to be acknowledged in this fashion," commented Reese Barrick, director of the facility in downtown Price.

The college affiliated museum was satisfied with achieving re-accreditation and ranking among larger institutions, continued Barrick.

But the local facility was pleased to hear of the positive reception for the museum's documentation.

"We have a daunting mission and ethical responsibility to the public for preserving, researching and educating the public on the multitudinous array of cultural and fossil resources of eastern Utah," pointed out Barrick. "This mission is completed in the context of a rural setting where population and financial resources are greatly constrained relative to much larger institutions within metropolitan areas. We serve our mission effectively and with great financial efficiency, giving our constituency the biggest bang for their buck."

"It was a tremendous achievement for our museum to be a member of the 4 percent of museums nationwide to be accredited by the AAM, but to have such a large selection of our policies, planning and procedures including our mission statement chosen to be used as examples for other museums across the country is a credit to the dedication of the museum staff, volunteers, the College of Eastern Utah and the communities of Carbon and Emery counties," concluded Barrick.
