h-net.org/
H-Net is a Michigan-based interdisciplinary organization of scholars and an essential source of information on museum developments worldwide. I use H-Museum, its museum studies network, which includes a moderated mailing list with more than 3,600 subscribers from 94 countries. It publishes a weekly news digest of articles on international museological topics in five languages.

icom.museum
Created in 1946, the International Council of Museums (ICOM) is an organization of museums and museum professionals. ICOM explores solutions to pressing museum issues — such as the looting of cultural artifacts — that cannot be solved at a regional or national level. For instance, ICOM maintains a list of stolen and at-risk artifacts at icom.museum/redlist.
