Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of records created by Jane R. Glaser during her tenure as Director of the Office of Museum Programs (OMP), 1976-1989, and as Special Assistant in the offices of the Assistant Secretary for the Arts and Humanities, 1989-1994, the Assistant Provost for the Arts and Humanities, 1994-1996, and the Provost, 1996. Glaser retired from the Smithsonian Institution (SI) at the end of April 1996. The bulk of the records document the organizations, projects, and activities that Glaser was involved in as OMP Director, and the projects she worked on as Special Assistant.

Many of the files concern OMP's use of a large grant from the Kellogg Foundation, known as the Kellogg Project. The video "Museum and Community," made under the auspices of the project, is particularly well documented, and the records contain the program itself in several formats. The master videotape of the program is in the possession of the American Association of Museums, which sells copies and shares some of the proceeds with the Smithsonian.

The files also contain documentation and copies of the audiocassette and booklet package "The Educated Eye," which was published by Smithsonian/Folkways Recordings in February 1995, and which grew out of a series of courses that were held by the Resident Associate Program and cosponsored by OMP. The records also contain different versions and formats of the program "Museum Careers," which includes interviews with Smithsonian staff such as Joshua Taylor and Roger Kennedy.

The records also contain documentation and recordings of a seminar on gender held at the Smithsonian in 1986. The 1990 OMP seminar "Gender Perspectives" is well documented through memoranda, correspondence, photographs, and recordings. This seminar resulted in a book of the same name published by the Smithsonian Institution Press in April 1994, a copy of which is included. The records also document the work of Glaser and her assistant, Museum Associate Artemis Zenetou, on planning and writing the book Museums: A Place to Work, which was published in February 1996.

These files also document Glaser's work with several professional organizations, such as the American Association of Museums (AAM); the International Committee for the Training of Personnel (ICTOP) of the International Council of Museums (ICOM); and the International Research and Exchanges Board (IREX). The records also contain files on Glaser's overseas consulting work, such as the Peace Memorial Museum in Caen, 1988-1989.
