This issue of reCollections: A Journal of Museums and Collections reflects on museums in the past, but also looks to the future, as curators and researchers come to terms with issues such as climate change:

  • Anne-Marie Condé discusses aspects of the development of small museums in Australia in the 1970s
  • Libby Robin looks at how museums in Australia and internationally have taken up the challenge of climate change, while George Main details a project investigating climate change in a far more localised sense
  • photographer George Serras introduces his photographic archive documenting two months behind-the-scenes of the Luang Prabang National Museum of Lao.

Also featured are reviews of recent exhibitions and museum-related books.
