“In this engaging and informative volume Karen DePauw unravels the mysteries of identifying, caring for and displaying historic costumes. DePauw clearly and concisely sets out the steps and appropriate procedures for working with costumes—from assigning and attaching numbers to incorporating the garment and its story into your interpretation. This practical guide is a must for anyone charged with a costume collection whether a novice or a seasoned curator.” —Cathi Fields, director, Litchfield Historical Society

Here is a complete introduction to the history of museums, types of museums, and the key functions museums play in the 21st century. This new edition features “Museums in Motion Today” where museum professionals provide their perspectives on where museums are and where they are going.

The Care and Display of Historic Hardbacking assists with the full integration of costume collections into the interpretation of the past.

The new edition includes discussions of technology, access, and inclusivity woven into each chapter, a list of challenges and opportunities in each chapter, and vignettes spread throughout the volume in which museum professionals provide their perspectives on where museums are now and where they are going. More than 140 images illustrate the volume.

The book’s focus is on costume collections and discussion topics will include information in regards to costume collection storage, display techniques, basic identification, and ideas on how to incorporate costumes into exhibitions and programming.

Historic House Museums in the United States and the United Kingdom A History

Museum Administration 2.0 Revised by Cinnamon Catlin-Legutko By Hugh H. Genoways and Lynne M. Ireland

By Linda Young

Wondering what a museum director actually does? About to start your first director’s job? Looking for guidance in starting up a museum or working with a museum director? Hugh Genoways, Lynne Ireland, and Cinnamon Catlin-Legutko have taken the mystery out and replaced it with experience, wisdom, and guidance. Learn about everything from budgets and strategic planning to human resources and facilities management to collections and programming. They also help you tackle legal documents, legal and ethical issues, and challenges for today’s 2.0 world. Case studies and exercises throughout help you review and practice what you are learning.

Historic House Museums in the United States and the United Kingdom: A History addresses the phenomenon of historic houses as a distinct species of museum. Everyone understands the special nature of an art museum, a national museum, or a science museum, but “house museum" nearly always requires clarification. In the US it’s almost synonymous with historic preservation; in the UK, it’s simply unfamiliar, the very idea being conflated with stately homes and the National Trust. By analyzing the motivation of the founders, and subsequent keepers, of house museums, the author identifies a typology that casts light on what they were intended to represent and their significance (or lack of it) today. Linda Young is a historian by discipline and a curator by trade; she has taught aspects of heritage and museum studies for more than twenty years at the University of Canberra and Deakin University in Melbourne. 2017 • 312 pages 978-1-4422-3976-0 • $85.00 / £54.95 • Hardback 978-1-4422-3977-7 • $84.99 / £54.95 • eBook

Indigenous Cultural Centers and Museums An Illustrated International Survey

By Sally Yerkovich

By Anoma Pieris

“[T]he book has value, and not just as travel guide (though it could serve as that). Looking at architecture in particular, Pieris examines the origins, development, and public reception of the sites, many of them designed in consultation with Indigenous peoples. One strength of the book is the author’s overview of how architects and curators (mostly Australian) considered the voices of Indigenous people in their design and interpretive practices. . . . Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, researchers, faculty; professionals; general readers.” —CHOICE Indigenous Cultural Centers and Museums documents a rich legacy of collaboration across the spatial disciplines combining creative art practice, architecture, construction, landscape design, and urban design in the production of unique and culturally significant social institutions. This book covers a wide range of cultural programs where talented architectural practices have consulted with diverse Indigenous client groups to design for intercultural engagement. It documents the creation stories of these projects from conception to reception. Anoma Pieris is an associate professor at the Melbourne School of Design at The University of Melbourne. 2016 • 328 pages 978-1-4422-6406-9 • $75.00 / £49.95 • Hardback 978-1-4422-6407-6 • $74.99 / £49.95 • eBook

A Practical Guide to Museum Ethics “This is a book that the museum field has been waiting for since the American Alliance (then Association) of Museums undertook revision of the Code of Ethics for Museums in 1991. . . . This book can go a long way towards generating productive dialogues about ethical practice. It should be required reading for anyone who teaches museum studies, works with boards of directors, or is responsible for writing a museum’s code of ethics.” —New England Museum Association Grounded in a series of case studies, A Practical Guide to Museum Ethics confronts types of ethical dilemmas museums face and explores attempts to resolve them in chapters dealing with accessibility, disability, and diversity; collections; conflict of interest; governance; management; deaccessioning; and accountability and transparency. Suitable for classroom use as well as a professional reference, here is a comprehensive, practical guide for dealing with ethical issues in museums. Sally Yerkovich is the director of the Institute of Museum Ethics at Seton Hall University and an adjunct professor in the museum professions program at Seton Hall as well as in the Museum Anthropology Program at Columbia University. 2016 • 244 pages 978-1-4422-3163-4 • $35.00 / £23.95 • Paperback 978-1-4422-3162-7 • $85.00 / £54.95 • Hardback 978-1-4422-3164-1 • $34.99 / £23.95 • eBook

Textile Collections

Collection Care

By Amanda Grace Sikarskie

By Brent Powell Foreword by Mervin Richard

Preservation, Access, Curation, and Interpretation in the Digital Age Collections of textiles—historic costume, quilts, needlework samplers, and the like—have benefited greatly from the digital turn in museum and archival work. Both institutional online repositories and collections-based social media sites have fostered unprecedented access to textile collections that have traditionally been marginalized in museums. How can curators, interpreters, and collections managers make best use of these new opportunities? To answer this question, the author worked with sites including the Great Lakes Quilt Center at the Michigan State University Museum, the Design Center at Philadelphia University, the International Quilt Study Center and Museum at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and the WGBH Boston Media Library and Archives, as well as user-curated social sites online such as Tumblr and Polyvore, to create four compelling case studies on the preservation, access, curation, and interpretation of textile objects. Amanda Grace Sikarskie is a textile historian, educator, museum practitioner, and blogger whose work investigates material culture—especially textiles—in the digital age.

Collection Care provides a solid overview of basic collection care procedures and policies. The topics covered address the decision making criteria and risk assessment solutions involved in the best practices for handling art and artifacts. Technical subjects will cover proven techniques, materials, equipment and address problem solving assessment and current solutions.

Nomenclature 4.0 for Museum Cataloging

Museums

Robert G. Chenhall’s System for Classifying Cultural Objects

A History

By John E. Simmons This comprehensive history of museums begins with the origins of collecting in prehistory and traces the evolution of museums from grave goods to treasure troves, from the Alexandrian Temple of the Muses to the Renaissance cabinets of curiosities, and onto the diverse array of modern institutions worldwide. The development of museums as public institutions is explored in the context of world history with a special emphasis on the significance of objects and collecting. The book examines how the successful exportation of the European museum model and its international adaptations have created public institutions that are critical tools in diverse societies for understanding the world. Rather than focusing on a specialized aspect of museum history, this volume provides a comprehensive synthesis of museums worldwide from their earliest origins to the present. Museums: A History tells the fascinating story of how museums respond to the needs of the cultures that create them. John E. Simmons has been a zookeeper, collections manager, museum studies instructor, and director of a graduate program in museum studies. At present, he is an independent museum consultant.

Case Studies in Cultural Entrepreneurship How to Create Relevant and Sustainable Institutions

Edited by Gretchen Sullivan Sorin and Lynne A. Sessions “The great value of Museums 101 is that it outlines the basics of exhibition development, collections care, evaluation, and more, in a way that acknowledges that museum work requires specialized expertise. Don’t try to re-invent the museum, it tells the collector deciding to build a museum from scratch, or the businessman suddenly appointed to the board. There are things you need to know. Museums have figured out a lot. Read this book to get up to speed.” —Curator: The Museum Journal In one short volume, Mark Walhimer covers:

• • • •

Essential background, such as what is a museum, a quick history of museums, and 10 steps to starting a museum Operational basics, such as branding, marketing, strategic planning, governance, accessibility, and day-to-day operations What goes on behind the scenes in a museum, ranging from finances to fundraising to art handling, exhibit management, and research The visitor experience, planning a museum, designing exhibits for visitors, programming, and exhibit evaluation.

“Sorin and Sessions have masterfully unveiled several case studies that illuminate the stories of institutional leaders who had the courage and tenacity to interpret external pressures and opportunities anew, to exercise adept flexibility, and to persevere with patience and humility in order to create something remarkable and refreshingly different. These stories will aid and inspire trustees and leaders to step back to reframe their reality, to ask different questions, and to explore new models that reflect more robust ways of being with their public. This collection is a welcome addition to the literature and the ongoing conversation of relevancy and sustainability in our institutions and museums.” —AASLH History News Case Studies in Cultural Entrepreneurship offers highly focused case studies that demonstrate the critical role entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial thinking play in reinventing cultural organizations.

Exhibit Makeovers

A Do-It-Yourself Workbook for Small Museums

By Beth Hansen

Second Edition By Alice Parman, Ann Craig, Lyle Murphy, Liz White and Lauren Willis

“There are many handbooks about creating exhibitions, but this is the first one I found that really goes into the basics, the nuts and bolts of exhibit planning and installing. It is especially good for people in small museums who wear many—if not all—hats in the process. The many practical examples from label writing to mannequin building show that you don’t need a big budget to create compelling exhibitions.”—Angela Kipp, collections manager, TECHNOSEUM, Mannheim, Germany, and co-founder and administrator of Registrar Trek

“The revised Exhibit Makeovers provides a practical and succinct overview of everything you need to consider while developing exhibits. It is an essential guide for beginners and a useful resource for more experienced museum professionals. The authors’ step-by-step procedures and tasks reflect the best contemporary thinking with regard to inclusion and storytelling.

The Manual of Strategic Planning for Cultural Organizations A Guide for Museums, Performing Arts, Science Centers, Public Gardens, Heritage Sites, Libraries, Archives and Zoos By Gail Dexter Lord and Kate Markert

“Strategic planning is at the heart of every successful business. Museums and cultural institutions are complex organizations. For them, strategic planning is even more vital to both survival and success. Gail Lord and Kate Markert have revised and expanded one of the essential volumes on planning for cultural organizations. From gardens and zoos to art museums and libraries, The Manual of Strategic Planning for Cultural Organizations is a blueprint to be followed. Too often, planning is deferred, replaced with attention to more pressing and immediate needs—which can result in lackluster performance or even failure. With this volume, strategic planning is made accessible and understandable in a straightforward manner. This book is both a ‘howto’ guide with great, concise case studies and an essential theoretical overview of the processes, philosophies, and practices that underpin any solid strategic planning effort. I hope it will serve as a guide and encouragement for many to invest in the most important task any cultural organization can make beyond a solid mission: its strategic plan to success.” —Alex Nyerges, director and CEO, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts The Manual of Strategic Planning for Cultural Organizations adopts a hollistic approach to the creative world of cultural institutions. By encompassing museums, art galleries, gardens, zoos, science centers, historic sites, cultural centers, festivals, and performing arts, this book responds to the reality that boundaries are being blurred among institutional types—with many gardens incorporating exhibitions, many museums part of multidisciplinary cultural centers and festivals.. As cultural leaders transform the arts in the twenty-first century, this “whole career” manual will prepare readers for every stage. Gail Dexter Lord is co-founder and co-president of Lord Cultural Resources. With Barry Lord, she is co-editor of The Manual of Museum Planning, co-author of The Manual of Museum Management (1997 and 2009). Gail’s most recent book is Cities, Museums and Soft Power. Kate Markert is executive director of Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens in Washington, D.C., where, as the result of a strategic planning process, a special exhibition program and revitalized gardens have spurred a 50 percent increase in attendance over five years and has tripled the membership.

Positioning Your Museum as a Critical Community Asset A Practical Guide

Edited by Robert P. Connolly and Elizabeth A. Bollwerk “Happily, this volume is not yet one more call for museums to engage with the communities they serve—as its editors note, that would be nothing new. Rather, the book is a ‘how-to’ guide, illustrated with case studies drawn from a wide variety of contexts, and including a digital resource guide (linked to ancillary online content) compiled by the book’s contributors. This volume demonstrates how reciprocal, mutually empowered community engagement is a profoundly co-creative process which benefits both communities and the museums which serve them.” —Carol McDavid, Community Archaeology Research Institute, Inc. In this how-to guide, practitioners at cultural heritage venues share their experiences in building sustainable relationships with their geographic and demographic communities. The volume focuses on the practicalities of starting and sustaining educational, advocational, digital and co-creative activities and programs. The thematic essays and case studies discuss strategies and actions museums can employ to build relationships with their communities, while serving as a community asset and resource. Case studies include candid discussions of successes, challenges, and lessons learned with an emphasis on small- to medium-sized institutions with limited staff and budgets. Robert Connolly is active in the museum field as an independent consultant and president of the Advocates for the Poverty Point World Heritage Site. Elizabeth A. Bollwerk is currently an archaeological analyst for the Digital Archaeological Archive of Comparative Slavery (DAACS, www.daacs.org) at the Thomas Jefferson Foundation based at Monticello.

Managing Previously Unmanaged Collections A Practical Guide for Museums

Recruiting and Managing Volunteers in Museums A Handbook for Volunteer Management By Kristy Van Hoven and Loni Wellman

By Angela Kipp

“It is her experience of working with a number of collections in varying states of management that led her to write this absorbing and valuable book. At some point in our careers, those of us working in collections care are likely to be confronted with one that has not been cared for to the expected standards. Managing Previously Unmanaged Collections is intended as a practical guide to address these situations. . . . The watchword for the book is practicality. . . . Even for those yet to confront an unmanaged collection on a meaningful scale, this book is essential for anyone caring for museum objects. Its clear and supportive language, coupled with the many practical nuggets of advice, will make it a valuable companion for all.” —Museums Journal Managing previously unmanaged collections can be challenging. The process of securing the collection and making it accessible needs the mindset of a collections manager as well as the one of a project manager. The book is a step-by-step guide how to approach this situation, assuming that there’s nothing to start with but a collection that has to be accessioned and the person who is assigned to do it. It is about how to bring order into the chaos, to define what is needed in terms of time, money, staff and material, to spot facility issues and potential dangers, and to use the power of networking to solve an otherwise unsolvable task.

The book is not prescriptive, but liberating, as the framework recognizes that each museum needs to decide on its own purposes and priorities. John W.

We are in the middle of a museum paradigm shift and a new type of museum volunteer is emerging from the community. Non-profit volunteers are looking for unique and satisfying ways to engage in their communities and museums are primed to offer just the experiences these volunteers are looking for. Here’s a practical exploration of the differences between the “then” and “now” volunteers and solid advice on volunteer recruitment, communication, and retention strategies. Written in a light hearted spirit, Recruiting and Managing Volunteers in Museums engages and informs any professional tasked with developing and managing a volunteer program at their institution. Museums offer an amazing array of volunteer opportunities that help create a greater sense of belonging and purpose for the volunteer. With a growing number of retiring professionals and students looking for professional experiences, now is the time to embark on developing a volunteer program that will thrive in the years to come.

Museum and Historic Site Management A Case Study Approach By Samantha Chmelik

Cities, Museums and Soft Power By Gail Dexter Lord and Ngaire Blankenberg

In Cities, Museums and Soft Power, museum planners Gail Lord and Ngaire Blankenberg demonstrate how museums and cities are using their soft power to address some of the most important issues of our time. Soft power is the exercise of influence through attraction, persuasion, and agenda setting rather than military or economic coercion.

“This book will be a useful reference or text for those committed to teaching through case studies. The cases are concisely written, yet they include dialogue and are rich in detail. Since they illustrate a broad range of museum management problems, the book is most useful as an undergraduate text or in an introductory course. . . . The book will be useful as a teaching text and of interest to museum educators.” —Muse Magazine Museum and Historic Site Management utilizes the classic business case study approach to help museum and public history professionals think through different scenarios and understand/anticipate different points of view in resolving issues. The thirty case study topics include board management, fundraising, personnel planning, technology, and financial planning.

Basic Condition Reporting A Handbook

Fourth Edition By Southeastern Registrars Association Edited by Deborah Rose Van Horn, Heather Culligan and Corinne Midgett The fourth edition of Basic Condition Reporting: A Handbook proffers a standard vocabulary for all of the individuals in a museum that may be conducting condition reports. In an ideal world, everyone who does a condition report for an item would be trained in the exact same standards, use the same terminology, and use the exact same form, etc. However, the reality is that even if every registrar, collections manager, and curator in your institution does condition reports, each report will be slightly different. Then you throw in every intern, volunteer, or student that may assist and you will find a variety of methods and terminologies that appear. This volume provides a baseline that all of these people can work from so that any person who opens the condition report can understand what the problems on a particular piece include. The Southeastern Registrars Association (SERA) was founded in 1978 to encourage high standards of museum practice and foster professional growth among museum registrars and collections managers in the southeastern region of the United States of America. 2015 • 148 pages 978-1-4422-4771-0 • $45.00 / £29.95 • Paperback 978-1-4422-4770-3 • $95.00 / £65.00 • Hardback 978-1-4422-4772-7 • $44.99 / £29.95 • eBook

Art Law

A Concise Guide for Artists, Curators, and Art Educators

The Legal Guide for Museum Professionals Edited by Julia Courtney

By Michael E. Jones

“Topics are as current as the legal complications related to a museum’s presence on social media. The target audience is somewhat focused: museum employees in particular. However, students and faculty in programs of museum studies will also find the information in this volume (and others recently issued by this publisher, such as The Manual of Museum Learning) of considerable use. Libraries serving these populations should consider this volume.” —American Reference Books Annual

In Art Law: A Concise Guide for Artists, Curators, and Art Educators, Michael E. Jones breaks down the legal language into a concise tool for all those involved in the art world. Covering topics such as acquisition, grants, and buying and selling, this book takes a look at the ethical and legal issues and rights that confront the art community and museums. Through case studies complete with images, readers can see these topics in action. Art Law is a must-have guide for art educators, museum studies students, art law and business programs, and artists looking for clear and readable descriptions and answers to the relevant legal issues facing the art world community.

From intellectual property law to navigating the hazards of social media, de-accessioning concerns to governance law, copyright, intellectual property law, and rights and reproduction questions to issues of public trust, The Legal Guide for Museum Professionals provides answers and action steps for mid to small-sized museums of all disciplines.

Michael E. Jones is the author of Rules of the Game: Sports Law, Intellectual Property Law Fundamentals, and Timeless: The Photography of Rowland Scherman.

Innovative Approaches for Museums Engagement and Access addresses how museums forge two-way communication and engaged participation through the use of community curation, social media, collaboration, and inquiry-based learning. Such approaches demonstrate how museums serve as thriving, central gathering places in communities and offer meaningful, creative educational experiences. This book addresses how museums forge two-way communication and engaged participation through the use of community curation, social media, collaboration, and inquiry-based learning. The examples of engagement and access in this volume are paradigmatic of a shift in thinking. Each of these case studies advocate for doing and listening. That is to say, these institutions understand the importance of meeting the needs of audiences. And, in the twentyfirst century, those audiences are onsite as well as online. While they represent only a handful of initiatives and engaging experiences thriving in museums today, they help us to see engagement and access in terms of virtual collections, the crowd (as in crowdsourcing, crowdfunding, and crowdcrafting), and the onsite experience. 2015 • 120 pages 978-1-4422-3875-6 • $45.00 / £29.95 • Paper 978-1-4422-3876-3 • $44.99 / £29.95 • eBook

In Marketing on a Shoestring Budget, Deborah Pitel covers the pros and cons of each promotional tool so they can judge what is best for their organization. She writes specifically for colleagues who have no formal marketing training and have to work off the “trial and error” method.

Emerging Trends in Archival Science By Karen F. Gracy

Forthcoming

Emerging Trends in Archival Science By Karen F. Gracy

As most works addressing archival science are either domain-specific journals or scholarly publications about best practices, there is a deficit in available resources for those looking to incorporate new global understandings into the archives field. Emerging Trends in Archival Science takes the first step to addressing that gap by providing readers with an excellent overview of the variety and scope of current scholarly thinking in archival science. The field of archival science has broadened considerably in recent years, and now embraces a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives. This book will make innovative theory and research about archives and recordkeeping more accessible to scholars, educators, and practitioners in the archival community.

Archival Arrangement and Description Analog to Digital By Lois Hamill

Divided into four main sections, the included essays address topics across cultural and ethnic borders affecting the contemporary archives field.

Archival Arrangement and Description: Analog to Digital teaches the core functions of arrangement. A historical summary grounds new archivists to assess proposed change for digital files. After presenting the basics of arrangement and description (processing) for analog materials, the text segues to digital materials incorporating the OAIS preservation model into a detailed, sample workflow. Although accessioning and technical appraisal precede processing, they are discussed because they are performed differently for digital materials and create a different starting point for processing digital files. Description is external to the OAIS model but linked to it. Recent advances in description and its delivery are presented along with concerns for the ability of smaller archives to participate in envisioned future developments that are technology reliant. New specialties like digital curation and data curation show the continued relevance of archival expertise for the digital future.

Karen F. Gracy, Ph.D., is an associate professor with tenure at the School of Library and Information Science of Kent State University.

Rich with added extras, the text includes and points to additional resources, many readily web accessible.

Building Trustworthy Digital Repositories

Managing Local Government Archives

By Philip C. Bantin

“Philip C. Bantin has succeeded in bringing together an impressive team of forty-three archivists, educators, and practitioners to develop this much needed, comprehensive and authoritative work. Students in archival and records management programs will benefit greatly by understanding the current state of trustworthy systems (Nancy McGovern) and looking to trustworthy systems of the future (Luciana Duranti). And seasoned professionals will benefit from the experiences of pioneering practitioners describing projects implemented in the workplace, including The Oregon Records Management Solution--ORMS (Mary Beth Herkert) and Washington State’s Shared Responsibility Models (Debbie Bahn). Philip’s book is a ‘must-have’ resource for archival and records management students, researchers, and professionals.” —Patricia C. Franks, CA, CRM,School of Information, San José State University Building Trustworthy Digital Repositories combines information on both theory and practice related to creating trustworthy repositories for records into one up-to-date source. This book brings all the credible theories into one place where they will be summarized, brought up to date, and footnoted. Moreover, the book will be international in its scope, and will discuss ideas coming from such important sources as Australia, Canada, and Western Europe. Until about five years ago, there were very few implementation projects in this area. Philip Bantin has been a professional archivist since 1977 and has worked for the last 21 years as university archivist and records manager at Indiana University, Bloomington.

“Local-government archives document life where we live it. Officials and custodians new to managing these essential records will find here a quick guide to best practice distilled from the authors’ six-plus decades of experience. Candid tips, examples from local-government archives around the country, a unique historical description of different recordkeeping traditions that shape local-government archives, and sources for deeper study are blended together in this up-to-date introduction.” —David B. Gracy II, Governor Bill Daniel Professor Emeritus, School of Information, University of Texas at Austin Managing Local Government Archives describes and prescribes the essential elements and best practices of a local government archives program. It is intended to be both a text for classroom instruction and a self-help tool for both professional and paraprofessional archivists. It is also intended to be helpful to local governments considering the planning and implementation of a formal archives program. Kaye Lanning Minchew served as executive director of the Troup County Historical Society in LaGrange, GA from 1985 until 2015. John H. Slate, CA is city archivist for the city of Dallas, where he has been responsible for historic city government records in the Dallas Municipal Archives since 2000.

Annual Review of Cultural Heritage Informatics Edited by Jennifer Weil Arns This volume of the Annual Review of Cultural Heritage Informatics (ARCHI) is the polestar publication for cultural heritage scholars, professionals, and students. Featuring original works selected by the distinguished editorial board of international scholars, ARCHI presents a broad spectrum of the cultural heritage informatics field. New to this edition is a Perspectives chapter in which scholars, practitioners, and leaders delve into a current issue facing the field, voicing their thoughts based on research and personal experience. One writer takes a look at how the transactions and reflections of collections work influences the workplace, community, and nation. Another Perspectives piece takes an in-depth look at the work and how theoretical and professional obstacles hinder convergence. The debate over technology and big data is addressed as two articles offer opposing viewpoints on the benefits and disadvantages. With a focus on the way our cultural heritage is accessed, stored, and preserved, this volume looks forward to the future and the insight brought forth through technological innovation and research. Jennifer Weil Arns was a senior evaluator at the U.S. General Accounting Office, where she managed and contributed to program evaluations related to information policy. 2016 • 276 pages 978-1-4422-6370-3 • $85.00 / £54.95 • Hardback 978-1-4422-6371-0 • $84.99 / £54.95 • eBook

Stirrings in the Archives

Encyclopedia of Archival Science

Order from Disorder By Wolfgang Ernst Translated by Adam Siegel

Edited by Luciana Duranti and Patricia C. Franks

“The publisher and the translator are to be credited with bringing Ernst’s work to Anglophone attention. . . . In short: if you found Foucault and co. worth reading, you’ll enjoy this.” —Archives and Records: The Journal of the Archives and Records Association Like most of Wolfgang Ernst’s work, Das Rumoren der Archiv explored the concept of archival and media theory from a current cultural digital context. Ernst challenges the traditional perspective of the cultural heritage institution and how it relied on media for creating, storing, and disseminating digital information. Archives have a place in a digital society, and the archivist’s role will be more increasingly vital in the future. As Ernst points out, his work will show a way out of the archive, away from the notion that the era of archive is coming to an end. Stirrings in the Archives: Order from Disorder is the long-awaited English translation of this seminal work exploring cultural heritage before the archives, throughout history, and from today into the future. Wolfgang Ernst (born 1959) is a German cultural and media historian. Adam Siegel is languages and literatures bibliographer at the University of California, Davis. 2015 • 108 pages 978-1-4422-5395-7 • $75.00 / £49.95 • Hardback 978-1-4422-5396-4 • $74.99 / £49.95 • eBook

“Compiled by Duranti and Franks, this rare offering— there are few archives-specific encyclopedias; archival matters are most often covered in broader library and information works—comprises 154 entries, each of which concludes with a useful descriptive and prescriptive keywords list and a bibliography. Contributors represent a number of countries, and it should be noted that the work treats records and records management as a subset of archives. Other texts on the subject have reversed the order, and the correct arrangement continues to be debated. The modern approach to archives arguably originated in France, and Duranti’s historical work on French archives explicitly informs the book’s approach. [It is] an oversized volume featuring a readable typeface. . . .Verdict: Useful for archives, records, and library practitioners as well as students, this clearly written reference is sure to be a go-to resource for years to come.”—Library Journal Here is the first-ever comprehensive guide to archival principles and practices. Encyclopedia of Archival Science features 130 entries which cover every aspect of the profession. These entries range from the traditional basics (like appraisal and provenance) to today’s necessities (digitization and digital curation).

Donors and Archives A Guidebook for Successful Programs By Aaron D. Purcell

“This book opens a new world for archivists, one that was always there but which few of us could ever see through the fog of our focus on the more technical issues in the field. This book is a call to action, a roadmap, and an avuncular advisor all at once. Donors and Archives codifies something core to the archival enterprise yet one treated with something worse than disdain—with neglect borne out of our certainty there was just too little there to consider. Now, our consideration can begin, and we can thank Aaron Purcell for getting us started.” —The American Archivist Donors and Archives: A Guidebook for Successful Programs highlights the importance of development and fundraising for archives, while focusing on the donor and potential donor.

The Care of Prints and Drawings Second Edition By Margaret Holben Ellis

Third Edition By Rudy J. Favretti and Joy Putman Favretti

The 2nd edition of The Care of Prints and Drawings provides practical, straightforward advice to those responsible for the preservation of works on paper, ranging from curators, facility managers, conservators, registrars, collection care specialists, private collectors, artists, or students of museum studies, visual arts, art history, or conservation. A greater emphasis is placed on preventive conservation, a trend among collecting institutions, which reflects the growing recognition that scarce resources are best expended on preventing deterioration, rather than on less effective measures of reversing it.

It’s been more than forty years since the second edition of this landmark guide to the preservation and restoration of gardens and landscapes at historic sites was published. Since the last edition came out, author Rudy Favretti, the nation’s foremost authority in this area, has worked on many significant sites including both Monticello and Mount Vernon. New to this edition are: • Personal case studies from the authors’ extensive experience in landscape restoration-preservation • An in-depth look complete with color images of the archaeological excavations at Bacon’s Castle and Monticello in Virginia • Seventy-three illustrations including eight color photos • An enlarged and comprehensive bibliography • Fully updated and added chapters based on new and emerging information in the field Rudy J. Favretti is professor emeritus of landscape architecture at the University of Connecticut where he founded the nationally accredited landscape architecture program. Joy Putman Favretti has been director of several libraries and established many important archives for libraries and individuals.

American Furniture

New in Paper

By Oscar P. Fitzgerald

On the Hunt for Cultural Treasures

Stolen, Smuggled, Sold

1650 to the Present

By Nancy Moses Drawing on the latest scholarship, this comprehensive, lavishly illustrated survey tells the story of the evolution of American furniture from the 17th century to the present. Not viewed in isolation, furniture is placed in its broader cultural, historic, and aesthetic context. The focus is not only on the urban masterpieces of 18th century William and Mary, Queen Anne, Chippendale, and Federal styles but also on the work of numerous rural cabinetmakers. Special chapters explore Windsor chairs, Shaker, and Pennsylvania German furniture which do not follow the mainstream style progression. Picturesque and anti-classical explain Victorian furniture including Rococo, Renaissance, and Eastlake. Mission and Arts and Crafts furniture introduce the 20th century. Another chapter identifies the eclectic revivals such as Early American that dominated the mass market throughout much of the 20th century. After World War II American designers created many of the Mid-Century Modern icons that are much sought after by collectors today. The rise of studio furniture and furniture as art which include some of the most creative and imaginative furniture produced in the 20th and 21st centuries caps the review of four centuries of American furniture. A final chapter advises on how to evaluate the authenticity of both traditional and modern furniture and how to preserve it for posterity. With over 800 photos including a 24 page color signature, this fully illustrated text is the authoritative reference work. Oscar P. Fitzgerald is a nationally known historian, author, lecturer, and consultant on American furniture from colonial times to the present. He retired as the director of the Navy Museum in Washington, DC and curator of Tingey House.

“Moses, author of Lost in the Museum: Hidden Treasures and the Stories They Tell (2008), considers the provenance of seven cultural treasures including Klimt’s Portrait of Adele Bloch Bauer I (the subject of the film, Woman in Gold), a ceremonial Ghost Dance shirt from a victim of the 1890 massacre at Wounded Knee, the mummy of Rameses I, and a typed manuscript of Pearl Buck’s The Good Earth. She reflects on the ethical issues that arose when these ‘objects with institutional pedigrees . . . were removed in some way, legal or not.’ The stories of these objects range from the dramatic to the heartbreaking to the venal (one is an account of the theft of historical audio discs by an official at the National Archives). In the final chapter, Moses reflects on the moral and legal questions of, in her words, ‘who owns—and who should own—the world’s cultural treasures.’ Museum goers may never look at an exhibit in quite the same way after reading this impassioned and engaging work.” —Booklist Stolen, Smuggled Sold: On the Hunt for Cultural Treasures tells the dark and compelling stories of iconic cultural objects that were stolen, smuggled or sold, and eventually returned back to their original owner. The book includes full-color photos of the objects. Nancy Moses is the author of the award-winning book Lost in the Museum: Hidden Treasures and the Stories They Tell. She currently writes the “Power Lunch” column for the Philadelphia Business Journal in which she profiles influential women. 2017 • 184 pages 978-0-7591-2193-5 • $17.95 / £11.95 • Paperback 978-0-7591-2192-8 • $34.00 / £23.95 • Hardback (2015) 978-0-7591-2194-2 • $33.99 / £23.95 • eBook

Art of the Amistad and The Portrait of Cinqué By Laura A. Macaluso

“’Portrait of Cinque’ by Nathaniel Jocelyn, is the focus of author Laura A. Macaluso’s newest book entitled, Art of the Amistad & The Portrait of Cinque. The portrait has enjoyed iconic status for nearly two centuries because of Jocelyn’s singular vision of a man who’s humanity was not deadened by the ravages of enslavement, or stolen by the struggles he endured on his dogged quest for freedom. He is someone we would all want to know because his image convinces us that there is courage, dignity, promise, and greatness even in the least of us.” —Rex M. Ellis, associate director for curatorial affairs, National Museum of African American History and Culture, Smithsonian Institution Tracing the revolutionary creation of what art historian Stephen Eisenman calls “a highly individualized, noble portrait of an African man,” Art of the Amistad and The Portrait of Cinqué is built around visual and material culture, and thus does not use images merely as illustration, but tells its story through the wide range of images and materials presented. While the Portrait of Cinqué seems to sit quietly behind Plexiglass at a local history museum, the impact of this 175-year old painting is palpable; very few portraits from the 19th century—let alone a portrait of a black man—remain a relevant part of culture as the Portrait of Cinqué continues to be today. Art of the Amistad the Portrait of Cinqué is about the art and artifacts that continue to inform and inspire our understanding of transatlantic history—a journey 175 years in the making. Laura A. Macaluso has taught art history, worked and lived at historic sites and written about cultural heritage (specifically museum collections, monuments and murals) for twenty years.

Developing Civic Engagement in Urban Public Art Programs

Famous Works of Art—And How They Got That Way

“DeShazo & Smith carefully selected eight U.S. cities to demonstrate the breadth and innovation in municipal public art programs today, from vegetable gardens to performance spaces and temporary site-specific installations. But the real value in these case studies lies not in the final products, but in underlining the public engagement process before and afterwards. They teach us that indifference is bad: a sign of low civic interest where people are disconnected, and stress the importance of critique and allowing the public to both adopt and adapt the works/spaces to their own communities to find an organic and long-lasting relevance.” —Susana Smith Bautista, director of public engagement, USC Pacific Asia Museum

“Art historian Nici considers some of the world’s most revered pieces of art and the ‘peculiar—and often inexplicable’ circumstances that contributed to their current significance. . . . Viewing the artistic material through the angle of fame is a unique approach and Nici provides ample and accessible theory, interpretation, and historical context to make this an interesting and educational read.” —Publishers Weekly

Edited by Jessica L. DeShazo and Zachary Smith

From the foreword: “As an intrepid botanist in the field, a disciplined taxonomist at her desk, a gifted artist at the easel, and a self-taught scholar during a period when women’s opportunities for advanced learning were limited, Furbish’s life and career are worthy of careful examination.” —Richard H. F. Lindemann, Bowdoin College Library, director emeritus, George J. Mitchell Department of Special Collections & Archives Published in collaboration with Bowdoin College, Plants and Flowers of Maine: Kate Furbish’s Watercolors presents nearly 1,300 of Furbish’s color paintings, all printed full size. This large format, two-volume set is a treat for the eyes and an almanac of the rich variety of plant life to be found in Maine. It is also a testament to Kate Furbish’s lifelong passion to record all of Maine’s plants and flowers in meticulous watercolor paintings. Plants and Flowers of Maine comes in three formats: This set is available as an eBook edition from rowman. com or your preferred eBook vendor. Use ISBN 9781442253766 when ordering.

Creating Civic Engagement in Urban Public Art addresses these and other critical questions. It demonstrates how public art can build community unity, identity and cohesiveness. The focus of this original work is how cities engage their citizens through public art. Through case studies of cities that have public art programs—some successful at citizen engagement others less so—the reader will learn how to design public art programs that build community.

By John Nici Foreword by Dennis Geronimus

In Famous Works of Art—And How They Got That Way, John B. Nici looks at twenty well-known paintings, sculptures, and photographs that have left lasting impressions on the general public. As Nici notes, there are many reasons why works of art become famous; few have anything to do with quality. The author explains why the reputations of some creations have grown over the years, some disproportionate to their artistic value. Written in a style that is both entertaining and informative, this book explains how fame is achieved, and ultimately how a work either retains that fame, or passes from the public consciousness.

The American Association for State and Local History Guide to Making Public History Edited by Bob Beatty

Gain insight into the world of history at all levels through this collection of essays that address the opportunities and challenges of our work through the prism of the past, present, and future of not only specific communities, but also of the field itself. Written by some of the leading thinkers in the profession, this book not only looks at major themes as they relate to our work, but also inspires creativity in how we approach our work in an institutional and personal sense. The themes themselves are important, but even more important are the articles (presented here as chapters) that amplify the overarching themes. Chapters discuss in-depth and through real-world examples, the work of history organizations. They specifically focus on the challenges and opportunities that are important to any nonprofit (or small business)—entrepreneurship, change, transformation, possibility/opportunity, partnerships—but also those unique to history organizations, leveraging the asset of history to: explore place, commemorate the past (and therefore better understand the present), demonstrate how it is people who make history, and discern how to use the past to chart the future. Together, these nine chapters in The AASLH Guide to Making Public History provide a roadmap of the national discussions the field of history museums and organizations is having regarding its present and the future.

Fostering Empathy through Museums “These essays in Fostering Empathy through Museums can help museums explore how to amplify their role in fostering empathy, through empathy, tolerance, and through tolerance a more just and equitable world.” — Elizabeth Merritt, vice president, Strategic Foresight and founding director, Center for the Future of Museums Fostering Empathy through Museums features fifteen case studies with clear take-away ideas, and lessons learned by vividly illustrating a spectrum of approaches in the way museums are currently employing empathy, a critical skill that is relevant to personal, institutional, economical, and societal progress. The need is rapidly growing for empathy to serve as a lens through which we find our purpose and connection in a complex world. This demand brings with it an appetite to cultivate it through safe and trusted platforms. Museums are uniquely equipped to undertake this important mission. This book will help museum staff and leadership at all levels working at a variety of museums (from animal sanctuaries to art museums, from historic house museums to children’s and science museums) to better understand the multitude of ways how empathy can be cultivated, and employed in museum setting.

Gokcigdem, Ph.D. is a historian of Islamic art and worked at the Smithsonian Institution’s Freer and Sackler Galleries as a curatorial research assistant in the Islamic Arts department. 2016 • 330 pages 978-1-4422-6357-4 • $45.00 / £29.95 • Paperback 978-1-4422-6356-7 • $95.00 / £65.00 • Hardback 978-1-4422-6358-1 • $33.99 / £23.95 • eBook

Living History By David B. Allison

“Whatever you think of living history, this book offers a much-needed fresh look at the interpretive method and cautions that it must adapt to remain effective. Allison’s voice of experience guides the reader through recent changes and his mixture of interviews, scholarship and personal anecdotes makes it an easy read. ” —Tim Grove, author of A Grizzly in the Mail and Other Adventures in American History and co-editor of The Museum Educator’s Manual Here, David Allison, who has worked at several museums known for effective enactments, provides the fascinating stories of three large living history museums as they adapt to changing audience expectations; a solid overview of the types of interpretation that living history museums use; best practices (and practices for you to avoid) from the reams of data and studies compiled by evaluators over the past 10 years; an exploration of the intersection of public history, individual agency, and business imperatives at museums and historic sites. Living History looks at the history of these compelling techniques, provides best practices and strategies for implementing them today, and provides a roadmap for the future of costumed interpretation. David Allison is manager of onsite programs at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.

Cemetery Tours and Programming

Magnetic

By Rachel Wolgemuth

By Anne Bergeron and Beth Tuttle

A Guide

The Art and Science of Engagement

Cemetery Tours and Programming shows the range and opportunities of cemetery programming which go beyond the basic starting points like dog-walking or traditional historic walking tours. While most cemeteries do not have a large paid staff, the book is accessible to anyone (a paid staff, volunteers, a Friends Group, or museum or historical society) looking to broaden the scope of how their local cemetery is utilized.

In Magnetic: The Art and Science of Engagement, authors Anne Bergeron and Beth Tuttle analyze six American museums that embraced a shift in philosophy and set a course of stakeholder, audience, and community engagement. Their “magnetic” quality provides a model for all types of organizations—from corporations to nonprofits—that want to maximize engagement with their customers and develop their true public service potential.

Rachel Wolgemuth has an academic background in American studies with a focus on folklore and material culture. She has over a decade of experience at a historic cemetery outside of Philadelphia.

Interpreting American Jewish History at Museums and Historic Sites By Avi Y. Decter

Interpreting Agriculture in Museums and Historic Sites orients readers to major themes in agriculture and techniques in education and interpretation that can help you develop humanities-based public programming that enhance agricultural literacy. Case studies illustrate the ways that local research can help you link your history organization to compelling local, national (even international) stories focused on the multidisciplinary topic. That ordinary plow, pitch fork, and butter paddle can provide the tangible evidence of the story worth telling, even if the farm land has disappeared into subdivisions and agriculture seems as remote as the nineteenth century. Other topics include discussion of alliances between rural tourism and community-supported agriculture, farmland conservation and stewardship, heritage breed and seed preservation efforts, and antique tractor clubs. Any of these can become indispensable partners to history organizations searching for a new interpretive theme to explore and new partners to engage. Debra A. Reid is curator of agriculture and the environment at The Henry Ford, and professor emeritus in the department of history and historical administration graduatepProgram at Eastern Illinois University. 2017 • 284 pages 978-1-4422-3011-8 • $38.00 / £24.95 • Paperback 978-1-4422-3010-1 • $85.00 / £54.95 • Hardback 978-1-4422-3012-5 • $37.99 / £24.95 • eBook

Interpreting Naval History at Museums and Historic Sites

Interpreting American Military History at Museums and Historic Sites By Marc K. Blackburn

By Benjamin J. Hruska

While the lessons of the past are equally important today as when they first occurred, the trouble lies in making them accessible to modern-audiences. Interpreting American Military History at Museums and Historic Sites provides a guide to turning those important American military moments into relevant and captivating experiences. The book acts as a primer for those unfamiliar with academic trends of the last forty years. Through current interpretive methods and case studies, readers will gain an understanding of how to take this information and create programs, interpretive media, outreach strategies, and mission goals that are relevant to the public and the institution charged with serving them.

Interpreting Naval History at Museums and Historic Sites demonstrates the broad appeal of naval themed commemoration, centering on military aspects from both times of war and peace. Using an international approach, the book illustrates the intersection of the historical understanding of one’s place and naval traditions. Locating the boundaries, one finds both the depth and breath of the topics linking (and dividing) water and man.

Benjamin Hruska is a history instructor at Basis International School in Shenzhen, China. Before this he served as the court historian for the Department of Defense’s U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces in Washington, D.C. 2016 • 150 pages 978-1-4422-6368-0 • $30.00 / £19.95 • Paperback 978-1-4422-6367-3 • $75.00 / £49.95 • Hardback 978-1-4422-6369-7 • $29.99 / £19.95 • eBook

Interpreting Difficult History at Museums and Historic Sites By Julia Rose Foreword by Jonathan Holloway

“Rose provides a remarkably thorough and thought-provoking theoretical basis for displaying ‘difficult’ histories in public venues. By including an impressive bibliography of works that examine everything from memory to the psychology of the viewer to how to create intimacy in uncomfortable exhibit spaces, the author has broken new ground in how practitioners of public history should think about exhibiting the ‘history of oppression, violence, and trauma.’ . . . Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above.” —CHOICE Interpreting Difficult History at Museums and Historic Sites is framed by educational psychoanalytic theory and positions museum workers, public historians, and museum visitors as learners. Through this lens, museum workers and public historians can develop compelling and ethical representations of historical individuals, communities, and populations who have suffered.
