Produced by the Maritime Heritage Network, A Manual of Maritime Curatorship provides a useful introduction for those who work in maritime museums, as well as those in related museum and heritage fields who are not maritime specialists, but who may have to deal with maritime material. As such it is an excellent overview of the extraordinarily broad and deep knowledge of the maritime world built up by curators and others over many decades.
First published by the Maritime Curators’ Group in 2002, the manual has been updated and edited and includes some completely new material. It is now published online to make it more accessible and searchable.
The new Maritime Heritage Network incorporates all the good practice and collaboration developed in the Maritime Curators Group and now serves as the Subject Specialist Network for maritime heritage in the UK and Northern Ireland.
