Books and Media

When you are searching our catalog or WorldCat "museums" is a useful search term because it is used in Library of Congress Subject Headings. Searching for it as a subject also helps eliminate art books and exhibit catalogs published by museums. Some example headings:

  • Museums.
  • Museums -- Administration.
  • Museums -- Educational aspects.
  • Museums -- Management.
  • Museums -- Philosophy.
  • Museums -- Social aspects.
  • Museum exhibits -- Social aspects.
  • Museum techniques.
  • Museum visitors.
  • Art museums.
  • Science museums

If you want to browse our print collection most of the titles can be found in the AM section upstairs.

There are also many books on Museology in ebrary.
