This workshop will focus on strategies for museum, archives, and
library professionals to effectively use marketing and public
relations to tell the stories of their collections throughout the
year, and not just during special exhibitions. It will present the
basic components of a public relations program, examine strategies
that have worked for other institutions, and tackle some challenging
situations drawn from the audience.  In addition, a panel of museum
professionals will be on hand to share their personal success
