The International Council of Museums, supported actively by the Cultural Heritage Division of UNESCO, answers, with "Museum Basics" , one of the most pressing training needs of the worldwide museum community. What are the basic principles that should underly museum work everywhere? What ideas can apply to ill-equipped and under-staffed museums wherever they are found - in Africa, the Highlands of Scotland, the Middle East, or South East Asia? Drawing from a wide range of experience in working with museums with limited resources, the authors propose the simple ideas which should underpin all professional museum training courses. Organized on a modular basis, "Museum Basics" is designed for use on training courses, to be supplemented by case-studies, project work and group discussion. With this book, museum trainers have available a guide to "best practice" in every aspect of museum work, from museum organization, through collections management and conservation, to marketing and security.
