About the Author

Heather Hope Kuruvilla is a museum professional with special interests in the areas of intellectual property and rights management, museum administration, board fiduciary responsibility, and the ethical and thoughtful approach to necessary deaccessioning. She studied museum registration methods at Seton Hall University, where she was awarded a Master of Arts with Distinction. She holds a Certificate in Intellectual Property: Art & Museum Law, which she attained while working towards her Juris Doctor at DePaul University College of Law. Her past research interests have included the intersection of ethics and the law in museum deaccessioning and the impact of the Visual Artists Rights Act on American museums, and her seminar article on deaccessioning was awarded honorable mention in the 2011 Lawyers' Committee for Cultural Heritage Preservation student writing competition. She presented a paper on ethics and the law in relation to museums at the 2009 "New Directions in Museum Ethics" conference.


"For all of those legal terms and ideas that you 'kind of' understand, this dictionary is a welcomed, focused, and valuable resource to give you a clearer comprehension of the myriad legal concepts that increasingly are becoming a part of everyday museum work." -- Mark Schlemmer, Associate Registrar for Collections, New-York Historical Society Museum and Library
"A Legal Dictionary for Museum Professionals promises to become a frequently consulted book on museum bookshelves. Its straightforward definitions are accessible to those not familiar with the law and provide entry points for the many legal issues that museum professionals deal with regularly." -- Sally Yerkovich, Director, Institute of Museum Ethics, Seton Hall University
