Fully updated and extended to include the many changes that have occurred in the last decade, this second edition of world-renowned text Museum Basics provides a basic guide to all aspects of museum work and staff experience from museum organization, through collections management and conservation, to audience development and education.
Drawing on a wide range of practical experience, the authors have provided an excellent tool that enable museums throughout the world to conquer a common challenge; to keep up-to-date with new ideas and changing practices.
Organized on a modular basis, with over 100 units, Museum Basics is a reference to support day-to-day museum management, and a key text in pre-service and in-service training programmes and works brilliantly alongside cast studies, project work and group discussion.
With glossary, sources of information and a select bibliography, this is certainly a book that no museum professional, nor museum and heritage studies student will want to be without.
