Abstract

This paper, Museums as Sources of Information and Learning: the Decision Making Process is the third part of the project's research report. It focuses on museums as sources for information and learning and what this means in terms of people choosing museums over other sources. The primary source of data used for this purpose is the focus groups, with secondary information sourced from the surveys, coupled with a range of other research and literature. A model of decision-making and information access is presented and unpacked, giving insights into how respondents felt about the role of museums in a contemporary and information-rich world.
