How to Connect with Other Museums – The Smithsonian Institution as a Case Study
Stephanie Norby, Director of Smithsonian Center for Education and Museum Studies

The Smithsonian Institution is the largest museum complex in the world – with nineteen museums, nine research centers, and a network of over 175 museums across the United States. How do you manage a system of museums and research centers with different ambitions, audiences, histories, collections, and expertise? This session will provide an overview of pan-institutional planning documents designed to encourage collaboration. Participants will choose a case study to investigate in small groups and discuss challenges and opportunities for collaboration. Case studies will focus on research, collections, marketing, and education.
