Field Note


Museum professionals are always busy, and since there seems to be no end to the laundry list of to-do items, the most urgent issues take priority. The often quieter winter season is a good time to work on some of the not-so-urgent issues--such as revamping an exhibit. Are there a few labels that could use a fresh look? Collections pieces that could use a rest? Environmental controls that need tweaking?
