Report by Axiell and MCN highlights the current digitisation strategies of today’s collections management organisations.
Views from more than 100 professionals working in museums, archives, galleries and other collections institutions took part. 118 Respondents took part in a global survey launched in October 2016 and follow up interviews were conducted with a sample of the participants. A particular focus is set on how readily the participants are integrating volunteers into their approach and moving to crowd-sourcing to increase their rate of digitisation. Examples from more than 10 institutions world-wide provide insight into how these strategies are working in practice.
