Museums are public places where objects, images and memories are kept and shared. They exist in infinite variety and contradiction. They can be places of great excitement or great boredom, and they can be sharply insightful or hopelessly bland. Museums are anything that the political climate and the imagination allows them to be.

Museum Provision and Professionalismbegins with an introduction discussing the broad areas of museums provision and professionalism and then provides a series of thought-provoking papers on museums. The editor has included material that is in some way influencing museum development. The selection highlights aspects of current professional concern and includes articles and extracts on how the museum is defined, thoughts on the museum, the museums profession, professionalism, codes of ethical conduct and institutional standards.

The papers which make up this volume give ample evidence of the variety of views that exist about museums. They also demonstrate that museums and museum professionals are moving forward with energy and conviction.
