The Digital Museum is not for techies, but for anyone who cares about the future of museums and the impact of technology on our lives and institutions. The revolution in communications technology has created a landscape that was inconceivable a generation ago. How will the 21st century museum respond? Twenty-five authors, leading thinkers in the fields of technology and museums, lead us through this exciting and rapidly changing terrain, exploring the impact of new technology on all aspects of museum operations, from interpretation to conservation. Topics range from the use of handheld devices, websites and digital games to open source technology and real-time learning. The book highlights how new technologies can enhance the traditional museum mission while also allowing museums to become laboratories for the tools of digital discourse. Introduction by author and filmmaker Selma Thomas.
