We are not static institutions; we are constantly evolving to meet the needs of our community and the collections we care for. At present, we are faced with formidable challenges and new frontiers: COVID-19, diversity, inclusion, experimentation, decolonization, cross-cultural understanding, new health and safety protocols, and the integration of current technologies. These developments, among others, are rooted in thoughtful, meaningful, and enduring change. As the guiding theme of the 2021 Association of Registrars and Collections Specialists (ARCS) Biennial Conference, Evolution is an opportunity for members to share and learn about the new ways the field is adapting our professional standards in response to the major cultural shifts happening worldwide.
