By Gary Edson Copyright 1995

    Choosing the right museum training course may be one of the most important decisions a person makes in their career. Whether you are already working in a museum or are just beginning training you will need the most comprehensive and up-to-date information.
    The International Directory of Museum Training provides a list of museum training programmes worldwide with detailed information about each course. Every entry contains information about subjects offered, numbers of students, scholarship opportunities, and contact names and addresses.
    International Directory of Museum Training is co-published with ICTOP, the training committee of ICOM. It is the successor to the widely recognised Museum Studies International, last published in 1988. This completely new and fully updated volume enhances the qualities of the earlier publication and updates the presentation to make the volume easier to use.
    This is an essential reference book for all who are hoping to develop a career in museum work or to enhance their professional qualifications.
