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.

Tag Tours

The Indianapolis Museum of Art have started an interesting website, in which tours are created around the hidden collections in the museum, based on social online tags.

Here it is

What are your opinions as to its success? I wish, personally, that you could link to the rest of the tour from the singular object, which it seems you can't do here.

How do you think such an idea could be developed?
