Corrine Glesne, author of The Exemplary Museum, is a qualitative researcher, educational anthropologist, and author of Becoming Qualitative Researchers (Pearson, 2011, 4th ed.) In 2011, she investigated ways in which academic art museums are integrated into university and college life for the Samuel H Kress Foundation, embarking on a year-long qualitative study of the “exemplary” academic art museum that involved interviews with museum personnel, campus administrators, faculty from multiple disciplines, students, and community members at diverse sites. Corrine currently works as an exhibition evaluator, and continues to work with international educational programs, having research experience in Oaxaca, Mexico, the Eastern Caribbean, and Costa Rica. She is Professor Emeritus at the University of Vermont where she taught for 17 years.

The Exemplary Museum
This perceptive, carefully researched book documents some of the best practices at leading academic art museums across the nation. Examining an array of institutions - large and small, urban and rural, public and private - it seeks to understand how success is being defined and how it is being achieved today. Campus-based art museums make enormous contributions to scholarship, education, and training; anyone with an interest in the role museums can play at academic institutions should read this book.
Anthony Hirschel, Director, Smart Museum of Art, University of Chicago.

What a triumph! The vision, precision and outright care in this book is unsurpassed. It is useful and extremely well-crafted. Corrine Glesne's ability to listen and to also hear what went unsaid is the most amazing gift. I thank her for the excellent job and the steady direction her report provides.
Saralyn Reece Hardy, Director, Spencer Museum of Art, University of Kansas.

I plan to make The Exemplary Museum a centerpiece for staff discussions associated with updating our strategic plan. This is an important study for university and college art museums that will very likely have a profound effect on the evolving role of campus art museums.
Charles R. Loving, Director and Curator, George Rickey Sculpture Archive, Snite Museum of Art, University of Notre Dame, Indiana.
