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.

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.

The Victorian era heralded an age of transformation in which momentous changes in the field of natural history coincided with the rise of new visual technologies. Concurrently, different parts of the British Empire began to more actively claim their right to being acknowledged as indispensable contributors to knowledge and the progress of empire. This book addresses the complex relationship between natural history and photography from the 1850s to the 1880s in Britain and its colonies: Australia, New Zealand and, to a lesser extent, India. Coinciding with the rise of the modern museum, photography’s arrival was timely, and it rapidly became an essential technology for recording and publicising rare objects and valuable collections. Also during this period, the medium assumed a more significant role in the professional practices and reputations of naturalists than has been previously recognized, and it figured increasingly within the expanding specialized networks that were central to the production and dissemination of new knowledge. In an interrogation that ranges from the first forays into museum photography and early attempts to document collecting expeditions to the importance of traditional and photographic portraiture for the recognition of scientific discoveries, this book not only recasts the parameters of what we actually identify as natural history photography in the Victorian era but also how we understand the very structure of empire in relation to this genre at that time.
