The H-Net Network for Museum Professionals is a moderated mailing list and information forum. This means that texts are reviewed by an editorial panel, revised if necessary and only then transmitted. The manager of the list will ensure that the contents meet academic standards and prevent their use for commercial, non-academic or non- relevant purposes. The editorial team is supported by an advisory board. The mailing list addresses themes and questions primarily relating to museums and memorial places, but is also intended to be interdisciplinary, so that archaeological, historical, cultural and artistic information can be posted alongside other more established, central spheres of activity. Articles relating to the activities and news of archives and libraries will also be listed. A particular feature is the emphasis on museums and the internet. You will also find accounts and discussions of exhibitions, reviews of books and other communication media, as well as reports of conferences and calls for papers.
Languages: mainly English and German, but Italian, French and Dutch too.
For those researching the properties of indoor air quality, climate and the implications of this on objects, works of art, and archival records.
