GRAIPEL JUNIOR, Hermes José  and  CUNHA, Miriam Vieira da. The museologist as an information professional in Santa Catarina, Brazil. Investig. bibl [online]. 2009, vol.23, n.47, pp.213-231. ISSN 2448-8321.

The objective of this quantitative study is to identify the profile of the professional curators that work in the state of Santa Catarina's museums, in Brazil. Bardin's (2004) technique of content analysis was utilized throughout the study. Data collection was done by means of a questionnaire. A survey was made of the professional's profile, including the museum institute where the attendant is employed, their formal education, activities that they considered most important and the necessity of continuing education. This is a profession that is composed of predominantly females over the age of forty, with more than ten years working in the profession, the majority working in public institutions associated with city governments or institutions of higher education. Survey subjects typically develop traditional activities but have knowledge of transformations that have occurred in the recent decades and seek to bring themselves up to date through short duration courses. These professionals have principally studied Human Sciences during their university studies.
