'Excellent museum worker' Project
The first encyclopedia for museum specialists will be published in Kazakhstan. The project is implemented by the National Museum of Kazakhstan as part of the Modernization of Kazakhstan’s Identity program. The encyclopedia will contribute to the development of museum affairs. The work, which will be published in two languages, will contain information about the achievements of prominent museum professionals who have over 10 years of experience. According to the project initiators, the encyclopedia will be an important and valuable specialized tool for museums and cultural institutions. Presentation of the book is planned in September. The organizers have planned to award the honoured museum workers whose merits will be mentioned in the encyclopedia.
