Museum Manners: Brushing Up on Research Etiquette by Learning from the Mistakes of Others
Author(s): C. L. Kieffer
This is an abstract from the "How to Conduct Museum Research and Recent Research Findings in Museum Collections: Posters in Honor of Terry Childs" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
Following rules and common courtesy go a long way in the realm of research, and museums research is no different. Yet, the museum world is so different from the field and most degree course work typically does not cover how to conduct museum based research. Therefore you either have to learn the ropes first hand or from a colleague. These learning methods have a heightened risk of being ill prepared and more likely to make an etiquette faux pas. This poster aims to inform archaeologists of museum etiquette for all stages of research including finding research collections, scheduling your visit, how to conduct your research while at the museum, and what is expected of you after you complete your research.
