Cabinets of Curiosity II

A session at MCN 2012

Saturday 10th November, 2012

8:30am to 10:00am (PST)

This roundtable will follow up the pan-institutional collection databases discussion at MCN 2011, and will attempt to further discussions on platforms for aggregating digital assets, extending the conversation to include databases with assets from a variety of collections.

Below are some key questions to be addressed:

  • How do we measure the success of what we're doing: are we meeting the needs of the audience, did it reach them?
  • How can we use the audience as a research body?
  • What do museums want to get out of sharing platforms?
  • What are the different audiences for online collections? professional as well as public....
  • How does the museum provide content to multiple platforms and keep it up all to date?--What new opportunities are opening up to enable museums to better serve their audiences and deliver on their missions via these online innovations?
