CACPS Sponsored Conferences, Meetings, and Workshops

Museums in Presidential Libraries

A dozen individuals from across the country came to Princeton in April 2004 to discuss the performance of presidential libraries regarding their museums and public and educational programs and to consider the policies and practices influencing them. The Princeton group discussed three broad areas: strategic planning in individual libraries and for the system; the quality and character of museum programs; and resources for such programs. Conclusions and recommendations were published in a brief first report in February 2005.
