The report Vibratory Impacts of Music and Transport on Museum Collections has been released by the international research group who developed and issued the research questionnaire in 2020 just before the pandemic.

The questionnaire was circulated by several museum-related organizations, including AIC, ARCS, IIC, Icon, and ICOM-CC working groups.

Over 150 respondents from 138 institutions around the world participated by providing detailed information about their current practices and experiences with vibrations of their collections during musical events and transport of objects.
