True needs, true partners : museums and schools transforming education by Ellen Cochran, Ed Hirzy( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aimed primarily at a museum audience, this book is also a guide for school educators who want to work in partnerships with museums. Fifteen museum school projects are described, all of which received Museum Leadership Initiatives grants in 1994. Projects involve museums focusing on heritage, arts, natural history, sciences, and industry as well as a children's museum, a society for historic preservation, and an aquarium. Project subjects include Science by Satellite, Digging into Art and History, Nurturing Eco-Citizens, and Melding Museums and Curriculum. The chapter "Conditions for Partnerships" describes factors that should form the foundation for partnerships between museum educators and school educators. These factors include commitment from administrators, teacher involvement, understanding of schools' needs, shared vision, planning and evaluation, tangible benefits for teachers, and parent and community involvement. Two essays at the conclusion of this guide entitled "Transforming Museums" by Robert Sullivan and "Transforming Schools" by Paula Evans are based on presentations at the Institute of Museum Services conference "Museums and Schools: Partners for Education" Held in November 1995. The reading list contains 26 books, 13 articles, and 1 video. (Pvd)

This national survey of the state of the nation's museum collections investigates collection care policies and practices, conservation issues, and private sector and federal support for museum needs. It consists of two major projects and four additional information gathering projects. The Museum Collection Survey is designed to examine all major aspects of collections care and includes information on facilities, personnel, financial support, budgeting, and collection object information. It includes data from 364 museums of various types and budget levels, over 100 supporting statistical tables, a copy of the survey questionnaire, and reports of 12 on-site follow-up assessment visits. The Survey of Conservation Professionals and Facilities includes information on geographic distribution of conservation resources, areas of conservation specialization, educational backgrounds of conservation professionals, facilities and equipment, staff profiles, and research activities. This project investigates both living and non-living collections through a conservation professionals questionnaire (589 respondents), and a conservation facilities questionnaire (120 respondents). Copies of the questionnaires and 43 graphs and charts are included. The four additional information projects are: (1) "Conservation Information and Training Programs for Museum Professionals and the General Public"; (2) "Private Sector Support for Collection Needs"; (3) "Federal Funding of Conservation and Collections Management in Museums"; and (4) "Methods of Inventory Control and Collections Management."
