Ideas for Museums: a Biography of Museum Computing
Anna Mikhaylova, Russia
While museums are digitizing their collections, I feel the need to digitize professional experience as well. We live in an era where any kind of information is available 24/7, and there are dozens of museum blogs, thousands of articles and books on the issue of professional development. We can easily get lost in this flood of information, so this might be the right time to stop for a moment and structure the things we have learned and think about future directions which we may take.
These are exactly the topics I would like to discuss in my lightning talk, and these are exactly the thoughts that made me start my project “Ideas for Museums: a Biography of Museum Computing”.
