Canadian Heritage recently released its most recent report on the 2015 Government of Canada Survey of Heritage Institutions. This survey collects financial and operating data from Canada’s heritage institutions, museums, art galleries, archives, historical sites, zoos and botanical gardens.
People counters are devices that count the number of people that enter and exit a building or a particular space. For museums, they provide a simpler and more accurate way to measure visitation than, for example, having security guards use clickers.
Last May we invited contacts from approximately 1400 Canadian organizations to complete a collections management survey. The intent of this survey was for CHIN to receive up to date information on the state of collections documentation and digitization in Canadian museums.
Three years ago, the first issue of Canadian Geographic featuring the ‘What’s This?’ contest hit newsstands. Ever since, this regular series has been a staple in the magazine, which is published on a bimonthly basis by the Royal Canadian Geographic Society. The Canadian Heritage Information Network (CHIN) is proud to be able to partner with this prestigious organisation.
