From "Preface" of "Exhibits for the Small Museum: A Handbook":
This "how-to-do-it" manual basically is a continuation and expansion of an earlier handbook "Help! for the Small Museum". In this manual, reference will be made to the earlier publication rather than duplicating information already available. As with the earlier handbook, it is my earnest hope that through these suggestions, staff members and volunteers of small museums may gain the confidence to try improving their exhibits through a "do-it-yourself" approach. It is still true that good design and interesting, attention-getting exhibits are more a matter of common sense, creativity, and ingenutity than of great amounts of money.
