The blueprint speaks of the Institute of Museum and Library Services's history of effectiveness in supporting museums and sees great promise in the Office of Museum Services's future. It cites as the five guiding principles for OMS action in the future: (1) reaffirm the historical emphasis of IMS support for museums; (2) promote innovation and reward excellence in every area of support; (3) stimulate the development and distribution of tools and examples that guide museums toward excellence; (4) encourage and enable sustainable partnerships between museums and other organizations; and (5) articulate and communicate the roles of museums and a vision for their future. The blueprint identifies other critical issues for museums and outlines the action steps that IMS is undertaking already. (BT)
