Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The vast majority of cultural objects that integrate museums collections are not in exhibition, but kept in storage. Those hidden places are fundamental in the quotidian of museologic institutions: they give important support for collections management, stimulate internal debate and discussion, and sustenance the several functions of the museum: study and research; incorporation; inventory and documentation; conservation; safety; interpretation and exhibition; and, education. For this reason, museums are improving continuously those places, and professionals are promoting debate, exchanging experiences, and refining their practices. In a recent meeting promoted by ICOM-Portugal this issue was discussed, with the contribution of professionals from three very different museums.
