Expect to read about buying at auction, farming demonstrations, teaching zoology, interpretation with costume, and specialist conservation.
Other articles in this issue are an update from the 2017 prize winners of Victorian Museum Awards (2018 nominations open 16 April), a summary of the 2018 recipients of the Roving Curator program and summary of our Digital Communications Survey.
