Museums in a Digital World

The digital shift has had a significant impact on society, and museums have their own role to play in this process. It has the potential to add considerable value to the work of museums.

In recent years there has been a growing demand for reliable data about the digitisation of, access to, and the preservation of museum collections in the cultural heritage institutions of Europe.

Through digitisation and new media devices, museums can engage with a wider and more diverse audience on various levels and play an increasingly interactive and educational role within society.
