The Participatory Museum

I came across this book “The Participatory Museum” by Nina Simon, 2010:

The Participatory Museum

The book focuses on visitor participation in this new age of museums, libraries, art galleries, and cultural institutions. The book acts as a guide basically to working with community members, to ensure that our institutions, proactively aim to be innovative, and remain relevant in today’s society. It also advocates for us, as individuals to participate in this process. The book is not heavy on the technical side, so it is an easy read, and appeals to a larger audience. It recommends different design techniques and also offers results from case studies to create a participatory community amongst individuals, libraries, museums, and archives.
