Description ...

H-MUSEUM (founded 2001) is a moderated mailing list in the H-Net (Humanities and Social Sciences Online) for Museums and Museum Studies. Currently H-MUSEUM has more than 7000 subscribers from over 99 different countries (February 2010). The list addresses themes and questions primarily relating to museological topics. Museums are intended to be interdisciplinary, so that archaeological, historical, cultural and artistic information can be posted. Also important are informations about memorial museums and places, monuments and the culture of remembrance. Articles relating to the activities of archives and libraries will also be listed. Another focus is the history and development of museums. A particular feature is the emphasis on museums and the internet. You will also find accounts and reviews of exhibitions, reviews of books and other communication media, as well as table of contents, reports of conferences, with a monthly conference digest (example), and calls for papers. H-MUSEUM publishes weekly news digest of articles on international museological and cultural topics in five languages (English, German, Italian, French, Spain). A list of selected central museum resources online offers further informations. The contents of the web site reach up to 60.000 single visitors and over 250.000 page views per month.
