Museum Basicshas been updated and expanded to integrate developments in new media, the continuing growth in regional and international cultural tourism, growing recognition of the role of heritage and culture in social and economic regeneration and the part that museums can play in this area, and the role of museums in #xE2;#xAC;#xDC;cultural diplomacy#xE2;#xAC;" at local as well as international level. With these crucial updates, Museum Basicscontinues to provide a guide to all aspects of museum work and staff experience from museum organization, through collections management and conservation, to audience development and education. Drawing on a wide range of practical experience, the authors provide an excellent tool that enables museums throughout the world to conquer a common challenge; to keep up-to-date with new ideas and changing practices. Organized on a modular basis, with over 110 units, Museum Basicsis a reference to support day-to-day museum management, a key text for students and in-service training programmes, and works brilliantly alongside case studies, project work and group discussion.
