Professional Resources

The Interior Museum Program provides training and assistance to bureaus and offices in managing museum collections within the framework of DOI's policies and standards. This section provides resources that may be helpful to museum professionals at DOI bureaus, other Federal agencies, and non-Federal partners.

Since DOI museum policies reflect industry standards and best professional practices, we hope that these resources will also be of use to all museum professionals regardless of whether or not they manage Federal collections.

These professional resources cater to various ability levels and educational backgrounds. They will benefit both experienced and inexperienced museum collection professionals, as well as others with museum responsibilities. The majority of the resources referenced in this section are free and publicly available, and we hope that they enable the best possible care of museum collections.
