The Museum Blog Book
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.
Much of today?s most interesting, innovative and passionate writing about museums and galleries is hidden away in hundreds of carefully-crafted museum blogs. And all too little of this content enters into mainstream museum discourse.
Over 70 blogs: transforming the museum experience
The Museum Blog Book brings together a collection which reflects fresh thinking and practice in and about museums. Whether the authors are from world-class institutions like MoMA, the Smithsonian, the British Museum, or the V&A - or are independent professionals or volunteers - they all share practical experience aimed at improving (and often transforming) the museum experience.
In five sections, The Museum Blog Book explores every key area of museum operation: from managing and collecting, to learning, interpreting and visiting. The content is both rich and concise. And - reflecting its online origins - the application of new technologies is explored throughout.

This is a book which speaks for itself: museum professionals share the experiences and perceptions they believe are the most valuable, the most urgent. It?s perceptive. Witty. Thoughtful. Concerned. Angry. Committed. Exhilarating. Invaluable.
Recensioner i media
david fleming, director, national museums liverpool:
I love blogs – they have given a new lease of life to opinion-forming about museums. This book contains some of the best museum blogs around, and it is essential (and compulsive) reading.
nick merriman, director, the manchester museum:
Blogging and social media provide a new kind of museum discourse: often informal, witty, moving, personal, and hard-hitting. The ephemerality of the medium is a strength, but also means that much that is of long-lasting value is lost to future audiences. This book does us a great service in bringing together some outstanding examples of this important genre in the more durable format of a book.
lawrence r rinder, director, berkeley art museum and pacific film archive:
Kudos to the folks who assembled this amazing compendium. Thanks to their prodigious reading and sifting we can now benefit from the thoughtful and timely observations on museum practice from a host of international museum professionals. This book is a gift to us all!
suse anderson, asst. professor museum studies, george washington university:
Blogging is a unique form of writing. At once personal, professional, and political, it draws its power from its immediacy, responsiveness, and the often-provisional nature of its dialogue; a kind of thinking-out-loud. Its visceral discourse responds to and reflects a changing world and sector. Like the best blogs, this book will perhaps be most useful when browsed, dipped into, and revisited often. Its individual chapters weave together to tell bigger stories, whilst each piece holds pearls of wisdom to be digested at will. Whenever you're seeking inspiration or perspective, the authors in this book will have some to share.
robert r. janes, editor-in-chief emeritus, museum management and curatorship:
The Museum Blog Book transcends the ephemeral nature of the digital world by assembling an impressive array of blogs on the challenges and opportunities of contemporary museum work. In the transitory age of the Internet, this is a collection of substance and insight where the words stay put – in a book. With commentaries on dozens of topics, ranging from new technology to activism, this book will engage any museum worker who values critical thinking and self-reflection, with or without a handheld device.
