Success Guides

The popular series of AIM Success Guides cover subjects which have become vital to museums in more recent times.  As always they focus on practical solutions, are written by leading specialists in their fields and include a summary and top tips as well as comprehensive further information sections.

All these guides are available to download for free to help support museums, galleries and heritage sites across the UK. Click on each image or the links below to open the Guide in your browser. These are in PDF format and require Adobe Reader to view them.

AIM is pleased to be able to offer its members and others concerned with museums and heritage this practical service aimed at helping institutions become more sustainable and efficient.
