Overview

"Museums throughout the world have common needs and face common challenges. Keeping up to date with new ideas and changing practice is considerably demanding for small museums where time for reading and training is often restricted. Museum Basics has therefore been written for the many museums worldwide that operate with limited resources and few staff." Drawing from a wide range of practical experience, the authors provide a basic guide to all aspects of museum work, from museum organisation, through collections management and conservation, to audience development and education. Organised on a modular basis with over 100 Units, Museum Basics can be used as a reference to support day-to-day museum management and as the key textbook in pre-service and in-service training programmes. It is designed to be supplemented by case studies, project work and group discussion.
