When faced with a question about your museum, sometimes you need a little information, and sometimes you need a lot. The resources compiled here by IAM is just a snapshot of what's available online and in print. If you would prefer to speak with someone in person about your concerns, contact your regional representative within IAM (found here) or send us a message (found here). We will be sure to put you in touch with the resources you need.
If you have a favorite resource, let us know by email and we will add it here.
One of the perks of membership is our library of previous IAM Connects Programs. As a resource only available for members you'll need a password to access the videos. Contact IAM for a password.
You can also find resources related to America's 250th Anniversary here.
