Manassas: On The Road Again, John M. Rudy

Interpreting the Civil War: Connecting the Civil War to the American Public

A few months ago I took a quick jaunt to Carlisle to see the Pennsylvania Civil War Sesquicentennial roadshow. I was heartily impressed with the quality of interpretation and exhibit design. For a rolling exhibit which needs to fold in upon itself, it was very rich and powerful. Jared Frederick, proprietor of History Matters had a nice roundup of what that exhibit comprises.

Drawing A Line In The Sand: When A Curator Becomes A Creator, Megan M. Carpenter 2011 University of New Hampshire School of Law

Drawing A Line In The Sand: When A Curator Becomes A Creator, Megan M. Carpenter

Law Faculty Scholarship

Over the last twenty years, audience attendance at museums, galleries, and performing arts institutions in the United States has decreased dramatically. Major museums and galleries are considering ways to add engaging and meaningful value to the user experience with technology, from incorporating user-generated content to creating multimedia installations billed as “collaborative” works.

In 2010, the Dallas Museum of Art’s Coastlines: Images of Land and Sea exhibition featured landscapes from 1850 to the present, as well as a sound installation composed by students and faculty in the Arts and Technology program at the University of Texas at Dallas, which played ...


Technological Innovations For Museum Evaluation: A New Model To Understand Visitors, Rebecca Suzanne Wahlberg 2011 University of Colorado Boulder

Technological Innovations For Museum Evaluation: A New Model To Understand Visitors, Rebecca Suzanne Wahlberg

University of Colorado Museum of Natural History Graduate Theses & Dissertations

The American Association of Museums 2011 Mobile Technology Survey, and the Museums & Mobile 2011 Online Conference and Survey provide evidence that the museum community recognizes that increasingly prevalent smartphone technologies offer new potentials for museums to engage visitors. Central to this thesis lies a proposed technology that will use smartphones and location-sensing technology to (a) provide visitors with a platform to engage with museums and other visitors, and (b) provide museums with ways to collect and analyze evaluative data in the forms of visitor feedback, timing and tracking of visitors' movements, and analytics of smartphone use. This thesis addresses features ...

An Observational Biodiversity Database For The University Of Colorado Museum Of Natural History, Heather C. Robeson 2011 University of Colorado Boulder

An Observational Biodiversity Database For The University Of Colorado Museum Of Natural History, Heather C. Robeson

University of Colorado Museum of Natural History Graduate Theses & Dissertations

Natural history collections play an important role in the accumulation of biodiversity knowledge through specimen collection and conservation. When combined with other sources of biodiversity data such as observations, these collections can achieve a greater potential. This thesis involves the development of an observational biodiversity database for the CU Museum of Natural History comprised of occurrence records, based on Darwin Core standards. The database will also be robust enough to include ecological data captured in the field. The flexibility of the database to store multiple data types was tested, as was the effort needed to prepare and import each dataset ...

An Investigation Into How Greater Financial Stability Can Be Achieved For Portugal’S National Museums Under Management Of The Portuguese Institute Of Museums And Conservation (Imc), Luis Ramos Pinto

MA Theses

The European sovereign debt crisis has led to considerable cuts in public funding for the arts. Portugal, one of the countries most affected by the crisis has recently seen consistent public cuts for its cultural organizations. With the prospect of continued budget cuts, this paper seeks to examine how Portugal's largest public institute for the management of museums and built heritage the IMC (Instituto de Museus e Conservação) can seek to generate more private revenue and lower its costs in order to garner greater financial stability for itself. The research, based primarily on financial information dating up to 2010 ...

Museums And Urban Revitalization: Regional Museums As Catalysts For Physical, Economic, And Social Regeneration Of Local Communities, Robin Foster Westervelt

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

Current perspective in museum discourse tells us the traditional model of museum-as-steward is no longer enough, that in order to fully serve their communities and respond to contemporary societal issues, museums must engage in community- building and socially relevant endeavors. Why is the old model of museum-as-steward no longer enough? How can museums engage with their communities in socially relevant issues and partner with civic and other social organizations in order to address current social and economic needs? This thesis addresses these questions and provides insight as to how and why social relevance is critical to the sustainability of museums ...

BGMC has taken a different spin on "Once upon a tIme." We are using it in our oral storytelling through singing. The concert you are about to hear is very near and dear to our hearts.

This music is a way for us to share with you, our loyal patrons, what we felt, dealt with, and eventually ended up with throughout our lives. With 70+ men in our chorus, the entire story is not entirely ours, but each and ...


Museum Collections Management Systems: One Size Does Not Fit All, Elana C. Carpinone 2010 Seton Hall University

Museum Collections Management Systems: One Size Does Not Fit All, Elana C. Carpinone

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

Collections management software companies claim their product can be used for any type of collection or museum. While this is true to some extent, in actuality, they are better suited for some types of collections and do not cover the others as well. Particular collections management databases have aspects that are better suited for certain types of collections and an individual museum's needs. Each system's particular combination of features and characteristics may make it a better fit for some museums' needs and not for others. Recommendations for collections databases are constantly sought after on the American Association of ...

Teetering On The Edge Of Suitable Climate: Kit Fox (Vulpes Macrotis) Range Limit Dynamics In East-Central Utah And West-Central Colorado, 1983 To 2009, Melissa Lynn Reed-Eckert 2010 University of Colorado Boulder

Teetering On The Edge Of Suitable Climate: Kit Fox (Vulpes Macrotis) Range Limit Dynamics In East-Central Utah And West-Central Colorado, 1983 To 2009, Melissa Lynn Reed-Eckert

University of Colorado Museum of Natural History Graduate Theses & Dissertations

Although it is acknowledged that species' occupancy at geographic range edges is likely dynamic and driven by shorter or longer-term extreme climate events, quantitative approaches that integrate spatiotemporal environmental dynamics with patterns in species' occupancy have been lacking. Here I show the utility of such integration. In this study I utilize data on climatic variability, previous records of occurrence, results from field surveys, and modeled spatial projections of climate suitability through time to make inferences about range edge dynamics for kit fox (Vulpes macrotis) at the north and east-most extent of the species' distribution in east-central Utah and west-central Colorado ...

A Kachina By Any Other Name: Linguistically Contextualizing Native American Collections, Rachel Elizabeth Maxson 2010 University of Denver

A Kachina By Any Other Name: Linguistically Contextualizing Native American Collections, Rachel Elizabeth Maxson

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Museums collect and care for material culture, and, increasingly, intangible culture. This relatively new term for the folklore, music, dance, traditional practices, and language belonging to a group of people is gaining importance in international heritage management discourse. As one aspect of intangible cultural heritage, language is more relevant in museums than one might realize. Incorporating native languages into museum collections provides context and acts as appropriate museology, preserving indigenous descriptions of objects. Hopi katsina tihu are outstanding examples of objects that museums can re-contextualize with native terminology. Their deep connection to Hopi belief and ritual as well as their ...
