Arguably all museums use digital tools to fulfill their tasks. Museums take digital photos of exhibits and use data bases as the central knowledge systems of their object documentation. They make online collections available to their visitors and social media teams use object information for their PR work. However, comprehensive digital strategies are rare in museums. It’s time to assess costs, risks and opportunities and to link the various approaches to developing a digital strategy that fits its institution.
The workshop aims at assessing the use of digital tools in museums in an interdepartmental approach. Curators, collections managers and documentation specialists will be brought together to discuss the digital tools they use and to find ways to develop a comprehensive digital strategy for their institutions.
