The Docent Handbook

Currently, the handbook is sold out. A second edition is on the way, however, and will be available by this fall.

The NDSC is excited to offer this new, revised edition of the handbook in the near future. The Docent Handbook has stood the test of time, and continues to be a valuable tool for docents/guides in many cultural institutions throughout the US and Canada.

The NDSC looks forward to announcing the publication date soon, so please monitor our website for more information. You may add your name to our mailing list so you will receive an email notification when the handbook is available for purchase.
