The Museum publishes its controlling documents online to give visitors a better sense of the Museum’s operations and governance. These documents are reviewed annually for any necessary updates and revisions.
Collections Management Policy

Its principles apply to any individual or group whose actions or conduct are, or may be construed as, representative of the Hearst Museum. Like all of the Museum’s controlling instruments, the Institutional Ethics Statement is considered a living document, subject to regular review and revision.
