Volunteers in Museums and Heritage Organisations: Policy, Planning and Management

 
9780112904915: Volunteers in Museums and Heritage Organisations: Policy, Planning and Management

How much do museums depend on the time and effort expended by volunteers? How can the full potential of this valuable resource be realized? Volunteers make up a significant part of the museums community, yet in the current debate on the function of museums and galleries in society they scarcely merit a mention. In today's financial climate, the success and survival of these institutions is dependent on careful expenditure and the ability to maximize the use of available resources - including volunteers. Their involvement and enthusiasm can not only improve many aspects of the work involved, but also help forge strong links with the local community. This book examines the involvement of volunteers in museums, providing practical help and advice on policy planning, recruitment, induction and training, and tackling essential issues like employment law and liability and relations between paid and volunteer staff. It comes at a time when museums are reviewing all aspects of their planning and management, and will be of great interest to governing bodies, directors, curators and staff.
