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.
