Abstract

The article is a detailed review of the book by O.N. Shelegina «The Museum World of Siberia in the First Decades of the XXI Century» (2019). The monograph’s relevance is explained by the lack of analogues among domestic studies of museum activities for the period under study. It analyzes the author’s adaptive and synergetic approaches to study the processes of the Siberian museum world transformation in the context of globalization and glocalization; reveals the scientific novelty due to systematizing significant empirical material associated with large-scale research and organizational events, publishing projects, activities of Siberian museums-reserves and open-air museums. The paper states theoretical validity and conceptual integrity of the research; notes the analytics and synthesis of a significant historiographic resource accumulated in the first decades of the XXI century. It concludes about the high scientific value of the monograph under review and its importance in filling gaps in the field of modern museology and museum activity.
