On the Road Again: Developing and Managing Traveling Exhibitions, 2nd edition, provides a useful and practical introduction to planning, preparing, and successfully circulating a traveling exhibition. The title is directed especially to small and midsized museums, but its content may also benefit special collections, archives, and other cultural heritage practitioners interested in the topic. In addition to outlining and describing the considerations and work integral to mounting a traveling exhibition, editors Rebecca A. Buck, Jean A. Gilmore, and Irene Taurins provide sample forms, from checklists to contracts, for each step of the process. This updated edition accounts for some developments in digital technologies as well as updated laws and regulations relevant to lending cultural objects. For this second edition of the widely used 2003 text, Taurins, Director of Registration at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, joins Gilmore and Buck, who both retired from long careers as museum registrars in 2013.
