The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.

'Yet more blogs' alert!

So, as referred to here, and in addition to my earlier post today, here's a few links to some museum blogs I've recently found (links will appear in The Attic 'blogroll' as soon as possible). Probably something here for everyone.

Hanging Together - billed as 'The hangout spot for libraries, archives and museums'.

WACK! Art and the Feminist Revolution - blog tie-in with current exhibition on show at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA)

Past Thinking - 'Archaeology, history, Internet. Where the past meets the future.'

- and last, but not least, the Powerhouse Museum's (Sydney) fresh + new - 'discussion of issues in digital heritage and museums'.

That's enough to be getting along with, at least for now. More blog alerts to follow soon!

Thanks for finding and mentioning us (HangingTogether). All the contributors to our blog are from OCLC Programs & Research, and we do indeed have a number of interesting projects related to museums and the intersection of museums, libraries and archives on our agenda. For examples, see,, and the rest of our agenda throughout.
