ALHFAM uses both traditional print and electronic media to address as broadly as possible the issues faced by staff in living history, farm and agricultural museums. All ALHFAM members receive the quarterly ALHFAM Bulletin as a benefit of membership and are eligible to join ALHFAM’s e-mail discussion list, ALHFAM-L. Members and non-members alike can also access the proceedings of ALHFAM’s annual meeting and conference, a cumulative index of proceedings articles, an extensive list of individuals and businesses specializing in replicas for use in museum programming, and several infrequent publications including a Guidebook to ALHFAM Institutional Members and a bibliography of past ALHFAM Bulletin articles (1970-1986). Back issues of the ALHFAM Bulletin are available on a limited basis.

Open Air Museums: The History and Future of a Visionary Idea
Sten Rentzhog has written a comprehensive international history of open air museums. Full of detailed information about museums from Sweden to the Czech Republic to Canada and the United States, Open Air Museums can inform about the past. But it also tells much about the ways open air museums have appealed to visitors, and the ways that they can continue to be relevant in a changing world.
This ground-breaking book is now available directly though the European publisher. Go to this link -- http://www.jamtli.com/10739.bocker_pa_engelska.html
