The Academic Museums Collection

Each of our carefully-selected Book Collections is designed
to provide both outstanding content and exceptional value.

This ground-breaking, acclaimed, 1712-page, three-volume collection brings together as much good, current thinking as possible about the opportunities and issues unique to academic museums. Wide-ranging and committed, this is a collection of essays written about, by, and for the community of academic museums. Above all, they are intended as a practical resource for that community. The authors were charged with sharing useful information: strategies, best practices, mistakes made, lessons learned, what worked, what didn’t, and why. Together, these books offer the combined wisdom of the profession for the benefit of its practitioners.

Each volume focuses on a distinctive aspect of academic museums’ operations:
Volume 1: Exhibitions and Education
Volume 2: Beyond Exhibitions and Education
Volume 3: Advancing Engagement
