Legend for addressees of letters based on contact email address on institutions' websites

Only certain staff member and department names are included as addressees in outreach letters. Appropriate addressees and their identification codes are:

C: Curatorial department (no specific individuals with email addresses)
CC: Chief Curator, Curator, assistant curators and associate curators, *
 
E: Education department (no specific individuals with email addresses)
CE: Curator of Education, selected associates and assistants such as for docents, academic programs, adult programs. Includes college student education associates and assistants at university museums but excludes K-12 student education assistants at other museums.*
 
D: Executive Director, Associate Director, Assistant to Executive Director (some Executive Directors do not list their own email addressees)
 
G: only a general email address for the museum
 
L: Library (no specific individuals with email addresses)
LL: Librarian and assistants*
 
N: no email address for the museum
 
R: Research department
RR: Researcher *
 
* Multiple emails may be sent to members of departments.

Staff members reporting to heads of Curatorial, Education and Library departments may have titles such as Coordinator, Assistant, Associate, etc.

Staff members who never receive emails include employees devoted to Development, Finance, Marketing, Public Relations, Communications, Personnel, Human Resources and Building Services. Also, positions of Preparator, Art Handler and Registrar in the curatorial department do not receive emails.

 

Factoids

For phase one of the study, the Director of TFAO is sending all letters using his personal name. In phases two and three, however, Hello is used instead of Dear Colleague, because while the Director would likely be judged by addressees as their peer, other outreach volunteers might not be judged as such. It's a matter of courtesy.
 
In a phase one sample of 100 museums, from Ackland Art Museum through Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, many had multiple email addresses. The Memorial Art Gallery of the University of Rochester yielded ten addresses. Four letters were addressed to only the museum's Director. One letter was addressed to only a department name. For ten museums, letters went to only a general email address for the museum. Eight museums had no email address.
 
The above CC, CE and LL codes noted after a museum name may reflect multiple email addresses for a department.
