  • Is Collection Management an "Art" or a "Science"?

    Raikes, Susan (1996)
    Collections management has been the focus of much critical attention in the past, both from the government, particularly with regard to the national museums, and from non-government bodies. This has led to the rise of a wide variety of standard setting initiatives in the United Kingdom.

In this case the skull was that of John Park...

    Beresford, James M (2016)

In designing a museum geared primarily to achieving the repatriation of the sculptures taken from the largest of the temples on the Athenian Acropolis, the museum’s architect has ensured that these mar...
