Due to the entry into force of the Museums Statutes, in Brazil, the degree in Museology has been required for acting as a museologist. There is an imbalance between supply and demand,which is evidenced by the large number of licentiates in History working in museums. The initiative of the academic extension courses in Historical Formation in Museums, provided by the Laboratory of History Teaching of the Universidade Estadual de Londrina/Department of History, intends to contribute to the training of undergraduate students, in order to enable them to satisfactorily perform their duties in museums, centers of memory, archives, and related institutions.
