1992 "Museums and the Environment"
International Musems Day


Introduction

This bibliography is by no means complete or definitive. Instead, it is a work in progress. The UNESCO-ICOM Museum Information Centre has prepared this brief bibliography on the theme "Museums and the environment" from materials in the Centre. Staff are aware that many initiatives, activities, events and meetings have been held on this theme which are not included in this bibliography. We would like to have your assistance to expand this bibliography. It would greatly benefit the Centre if you would draw our attention to references that are missing and that should be added. If your National or International Committee has discussed this topic and produced papers, we would very much appreciate receiving this information. Your assistance will enable the Centre to do its International Museums Day project: produce a comprehensive bibliography on museums and the environment.
