El crecimiento en la industria museística ha focalizado la atención en cómo los museos son organizados, las funciones que cumplen y la puesta de estándares de desempeño, y, sucesivamente, ha incentivado a incrementar las oportunidades para la búsqueda y el entrenamiento profesional.
El libro apunta a brindar una guía integral sobre la documentación, ayudas de referencias y claves de recursos organizacionales de fuentes de información sobre museos y estudios de museos a nivel mundial.
Se analizan diversos estudios de museos y su información, se toman en cuenta museos de cinco países: Reino Unido, Francia, Dinamarca y Canadá.
El libro no contiene fuentes de información procedentes de Argentina, pero sí de Bélgica, Bolivia, Brasil, "Islas Británicas", Panamá, Perú, Filipinas, Polonia, Portugal, Rumania, Rusia y Sudeste Asiático.
No se visualiza el libro completo, falta parte II.
