To ICOM News authors and their beneficiaries

The Bibliothèque nationale de France, in partnership with the International Council of Museums, intends to digitise the issues of the magazine ICOM News, dating from 1948 to 2009.
The digitised issues will be made available free of charge on the internet, through the website Gallica and on ICOM’s website.
Collaborating authors or their beneficiaries are asked to authorise the Bibliothèque nationale de France to digitise and distribute free of charge and with non-exclusive rights, articles and illustrations published in ICOM News.

We therefore kindly ask you to complete and sign the authorisation form and return it to the International Council of Museums.

General Conference

Every three years, ICOM’s General Conference gathers the international museum community around a theme chosen by the museum professionals.
