Community of Practice: Online Collections | #MW18-TM

Thursday, April 19, 2018: 2:00pm - 3:20pm
Junior Ballroom C

The MW Communities of Practice bring practitioners together in conversation around topics of common interest, and continue collaborating online and in other ways outside of MW’s annual meetings.

Online Collections are arguably the area of greatest potential for museums and cultural organizations, promising innovative new ways of enriching the collection and creating engagement and visitor communication globally. Yet that potential remains largely unfulfilled for the majority of audiences. Practitioners, researchers, and technologists in the field convene in this Community of Practice to share their learnings, their trials, and their data to the greater benefit of all.

At 2:30pm Nik Honeysett will present the results of the collections management study recently conducted with LYRASIS. 

Chair: Sharon Grant
