Cover Image: Euan McGillivray’s photo of a display area in the Willandra Museum in Wycheproof. Over the years, Euan has visited more than 150 small museums in Victoria, met with over 1200 volunteers and delivered dozens of workshops for Museums Australia (Victoria) on museum practice. In his chapter 'Exhibition Design for Community Museums’ in Exhibition Design for Galleries and Museums: an insider’s view he outlines some of the practices that get in the way of a good display.  Exhibition Design for Galleries and Museums: an insider’s view, edited by Georgia Rouette, is available from Museums Australia National Office.
