How to Develop a Code of Ethics for Your Museum

November 18, 2016

fromdu 03 January 2017 toau 29 January 2017

Description
The American Alliance of Museums (AAM) includes a code of ethics as one of the five core documents that it declares “fundamental for basic professional museum operations.” AAM states that these documents “embody core museum values and practices.” By examining codes of ethics and exploring the principles that they include, this course is a preparation for creating your institution’s code.

We will begin by looking at codes of ethics, generally, and answer the following questions: What is a code of ethics? What is the difference between an ethical and a legal issue? Why should museums pay attention to both? Why should each museum have its own code of ethics? How is a code of ethics created – who should be involved and why? What is the difference between discipline specific guidelines and codes and a museum’s code of ethics?

After exploring the basic questions about codes of ethics, the course will focus upon each of the main areas of the AAM code: governance, collections and programs. We will examine the ethical principles each of these sections covers and explore key issues that might be of concern to different kinds of museums (i.e., different disciplines).

Managing Previously Unmanaged Collections

Course

Organized by:Organisé par :
Musuem Study,

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : online

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description
Working with a previously unmanaged collection is one of the most challenging and rewarding projects in the career of a museum professional. Challenging because of the variety of issues like leaking roofs, missing documentation and the question as to whether there is actually a floor underneath those piles of objects. Rewarding because of the variety of new discoveries and the skills that are learned, along with the satisfying feeling of getting things done.

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. This 4 week course helps you to get a grip on your unmanaged collection by developing a plan to tackle it, defining achievable goals by creating logical exits and finding ways to keep the project going even if you are limited in time, staff and money.


Building A Stronger Organization Through Advocacy

Course

fromdu 06 February 2017 toau

Organized by:Organisé par :
Museum Study,

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : online

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description
Advocacy involves communicating with broad constituencies, including elected officials, about what your museum does and why it is important. Too often museums relegate advocacy to the back burner because they don’t see the value in devoting time to advocacy. Advocacy needs to be an ongoing responsibility of everyone who cares about museums – staff, board members, volunteers, constituents, and the many people who value museums. Making advocacy a part of ongoing operations can help build a stronger institution. Advocacy should be embraced as a best practice of museums.
