Museum studies, sometimes called museology, is the field that encompasses the ideas and issues involved in the museum profession—from the practical, day-to-day skills needed to operate a museum to theories on the societal role of museums. The Smithsonian Center for Education and Museum Studies (SCEMS) assists the museum community in acquiring and strengthening its understandings and practices of museology. This website is one of the Center's tools for serving the educational and informational needs of the field.

She works with schools, museums, historic sites, and nonprofit institutions on projects that document the lives of African Americans, women, and people in the labor movement. Her recent work includes the African American Oral History Project and Interpreting the Texas Past.
