Museum Websites and Social Media
Issues of participation, sustainability, trust and diversity
Forthcoming – Spring 2015. Beghahn Books, NY and Oxford
How do museum online activities shape the potential of digital heritage as a tool for sustainable development, trust building, and representations of diversity? This volume offers a holistic picture of museum online activities that can serve as a starting point for cross-disciplinary discussion. It is intended as a resource for museum staff, students, designers and researchers working at the intersection of cultural institutions and digital technologies, and is written therefore in an accessible manner for the various groups. The volume unpacks extensive examples of museum web pages and the technology and thinking behind them. Theoretical and technical issues surrounding museum websites and social media help outline the broad context within which technology developments take place. The aim is to provide insight into the issues behind designing and implementing web pages and social media in this process, for the broadest range of museum stakeholders.
