This lively revision of Museum Administration brings it up to date with fresh and relevant examples, expanded explanations of complex operations like strategic planning and financial management, and above all, attention to the changing contexts-cultural, political, and legal-that impact museum operations. Issues like diversity, inclusiveness, and access are threaded throughout the chapters so that readers understand that challenges must be tackled on many fronts. My students-emerging museum professionals-will benefit from this comprehensive introduction, as will all who work in museums, whether board members, volunteers, or seasoned staff. -- Cynthia Robinson, director of Museum Studies Program, Tufts University
This is an impressive revision to Genoways's and Ireland's venerable Museum Administration. Ms. Catlin-Legutko's emphasis on the importance of strategic planning for museums, with carefully-crafted steps for completion, is invaluable, as is the chapter on finance. This book thoughtfully weaves together ethics, best practice, and "how to" recommendations with provocative case studies. Terrific! -- Nancy Bryk, Assistant Professor, Historic Preservation, Eastern Michigan University
