The loneliness of the university museum curator
Doubly isolated – from their colleagues within the university and from those in the larger museum community – university museum curators are learning to develop new approaches and missions for their institutions. Jane Weeks, a museum consultant specializing in museums in non-museum organizations, describes how this is being done in the United Kingdom. She has considerable experience of university museums, having managed a major Collections Management Project for University College London, and undertaken two regional surveys of university museums and collections in the south-west and the midlands of England, in conjunction with Kate Arnold-Forster.
