Institutional digital subs to British Museum Magazine now available
Claire Byfield: "The collection of archived issues has really been brought to life in this new digital format."

The archive, which currently stretches back to 2006 and will be completed in early 2021, allows museum students and professionals alike to access the in-depth editorial content via web, iOS and Android devices.

Founded in 1753, the British Museum is the oldest and greatest publicly funded museum in the world, exhibiting two million years of human history and culture, says Exact Editions. Published three times a year, the pages of membership title British Museum Magazine include striking visuals alongside museum and exhibition insights, research news and historical features.

Subscribing institutions will benefit from both seamless IP access on site and intuitive remote access options that facilitate access from any location as well as advanced search functionality.

British Museum Magazine is available in the Exact Editions institutional shop.

Membership Manager Claire Byfield commented: “The collection of archived issues has really been brought to life in this new digital format; the comprehensive search tool in particular will prove incredibly useful for those who work in or have a passion for the museum industry.”

Managing Director of Exact Editions, Daryl Rayner, remarked: “We’re delighted to be working with the British Museum on this new venture. Entering the digital institutional market will not only introduce the magazine as a teaching tool internationally, but also spread the Museum’s news and research across the globe.”
