Abstract

Unknown to many, museums provide value beyond their exhibitions. To conceptualize the value provided by the Research and Collections Division of Museums Victoria, this project measured and visualized the impact of the division’s stakeholder engagements. The engagements, including research collaboration and collection access, were analyzed to determine the impact in terms of benefits, stakeholder satisfaction, and outcomes from engagement. Data collected by surveying the Research and Collections Division’s stakeholders and its staff were used to create graphs, which demonstrate strong impacts in all three categories. To measure impact across other divisions, we recommend that our reproducible guide is distributed and our drafted centralized form to track stakeholder engagements is utilized.
