Museums Vs Libraries
I recently attended a training day regarding Museums and the structure of the work force within. What I found particually interesting was how closely related to libraries museums can be yet there is some sort of invisible force which keeps them apart. They seem so familar yet so divided. Having worked in Public Libraries myself and on many occasion worked closely with museums on various events, I have always put the two together. Whilst I do appreciate the different disciplines and skills required to work in these 2 fields surely there needs to be more synergy and partnership working in order to bring us all together. Or is that just a romantic view?
