NEMO published "Museums' 4 Values - Values 4 Museums" at the beginning of this month. In the publication four core values museums preserve and disseminate on behalf of society are presented and illustrated through 22 examples from 22 European countries. One of these examples is featured on NEMO's website each Tuesday. Also NEMO would like to ask you to participate in the survey on the most important issues and concerns museums face with copyrights. Please refer here for further information. Thank you in advance for your help and thank you to everyone who participated and shared the survey so far!
