Abstract: Creating an effective exhibit is a challenging prospect at best. Whether it is a small exhibit or a large one, it takes a great deal of planning and organization. In her new book, Organizing Exhibitions: A Handbook for Museums, Libraries, and Archives, Freda Matassa has drawn from her considerable experience and expertise in collections management and museum practice to create a step-by-step guide on how to design and implement an effective exhibit that will generate interest and feature collections in new and innovative ways. Although the book focuses primarily on large-scale displays, the general theories and practices discussed can be applied to any size exhibit in any type of venue
