This book investigates the possibilities for partnerships between universities and museums, especially in relation to their potential for generating innovative patterns of research and learning. The authors examine how to enable more effective and creative connections between museums and higher education. They identify conceptual and practical barriers and consider current academic models, arguing that as pressures mount on public educational resources worldwide, there needs to be an urgent increase in the exchange of knowledge and the forging of world-class scholarly partnerships. Examples of research undertaken internationally offer best practice models for collaboration and integration.
