Summary
  • "The CD contains a 6-minute video of the Excellent Judges process--the orientation meeting, the exhibition visit, and the discussion meeting. ... The photographs on the CD are in color and have captions that are based on comments--reactions and feelings--made by a judge as he or she visited the exhibition and wrote notes. On the CD, you can link these comments to related information listed in the Framework."--Page xii
  • "Renowned museum consultant and researcher Beverly Serrell and a group of museum professionals from the Chicago area have developed a generalizable framework by which the quality of museum exhibitions can be judged from a visitor-centered perspective. Using criteria such as comfort, engagement, reinforcement, and meaningfulness, they have produced a useful tool for other museum professionals to better assess the effectiveness of museum exhibitions and thereby to improve their quality. An attached CD includes a brief video demonstrating the Excellent Judges process and provides additional illustrations and information for the reader. Tested in a dozen institutions by the research team, this step-by-step approach to judging exhibitions will be of great value to museum directors, exhibit developers, and other museum professionals."--Amazon.com
