In its 24th edition <em>Museums of the World</em> covers more than 55,000 museums in 202 countries, listed hierarchically by country and place, and within places alphabetically by name. A separate chapter records some 500 museum associations in 132 countries.
Each museum has been assigned to one or more of 22 categories identifying the type and focus of the museum.
A typical entry contains the following details:
<ul> <li>Name of the museum in the original language with an English translation when necessary </li> <li>Address, phone and fax numbers </li> <li>E-mail address and URL </li> <li>Type of museum </li> <li>Year of foundation </li> <li>Head of museum </li> <li>Academic staff </li> <li>Collections and facilities </li></ul>
An alphabetical index of museums, an index of persons covering directors, presidents, curators and academic staff of the museums, a personality index recording artists whose works are shown predominantly in a specific museum and/or referring to memorabilia of famous individuals, and a subject index facilitate the access to the data.
The eBookPLUS format comprises the content and search criteria of the printed edition and its indices, facilitating complex searches.
