This the first book I bought when I finally figured out what I wanted to do with my life. Its; informative, encouraging, and still to this day I turn to it when wondering about internships, interviews, types of jobs and positions in museums, etc. I would highly recommend for anyone who whats to learn about museums and their (future) professionals).

I try to “hit up” this sit as often as possible. Mostly to curb my craving for the West Coast, but to also stay on top of the changing exhibits at the major museums up and down the coast. The lay out is very simple and easy to navigate, which makes a non-techie like me not too overwhelmed or put off (which happens more often than I’d like to admit).

I hope not to repeat this one, but I do actually turn to our trusty AAM resource from time to time. When I first arrived I wasn’t too sure why a subscription to AAM was heavily encouraged, but after just a short while of referencing for personal and work related research, I believe it is important for all museum professionals to be a part in the large community.
