Museums must comply with a myriad of laws and ethical codes regulating virtually every aspect of their organization and operations. While some of these issues are common to businesses of all kinds, some apply to nonprofit organizations, and others are unique to the museum community. MUSEUM ADMINISTRATION: LAW AND PRACTICE explores the many areas of law applicable to museums, including governance, personnel, facilities, intellectual property, collections management, and fundraising. Designed as a textbook for use in connection with museums studies programs and law school courses, the book utilizes a "casebook" approach: relevant court decisions and other primary source materials illustrate and enliven the descriptive text. Study questions are included in each chapter so that readers can apply legal and ethical principles to museum-focused fact situations. A comprehensive but concise introduction to the legal and ethical issues facing museums, MUSEUM ADMINISTRATION: LAW AND PRACTICE is also intended to be a resource for museum professionals and lawyers alike.

Museums are public places where objects, images and memories are kept and shared. They exist in infinite variety and contradiction. They can be places of great excitement and great boredom, sharply insightful and hopelessly bland. Museums are anything that the political climate and the imagination allows them to be. No two museums are the same. The papers which make up this volume give ample evidence of the variety of views that exist about museums. They also demonstrate that museums and museum professionals are moving forward with energy and conviction. This volume will be invaluable to students and museum professionals and will provoke them to consider museum provision and professionalism in all their forms.

In this second edition to Museum Librarianship, the author offers guidance in planning and providing information services in a museum—beginning or revitalizing the library; collection development and the bibliographic process; technical services; administration; space and equipment requirements; fundamental services; extended information services; and the information partnership between museums and their libraries. The Internet and other electronic resources are fully covered. The focus of this new edition has shifted slightly from mainly dealing with the start-up aspects to an emphasis on the goals of library and information services in a museum, and the processes through which such services can be achieved. The author’s underlying goal is to help enhance and enrich the encounter of the museum-goer with enduring objects, in a time when we all seem to be assailed on every side by random noise and flickering image.
