[MCN-L] E-books in museums

2011-11-09 Thread Greg Albers
Hi All,

A couple weeks ago, I gave a presentation at the Books in Browsers
publishing conference. Making a larger point about e-books' inherent
instantaneity and everywhere-ness, I proposed giving museum visitors
e-books downloads directly from artworks in galleries, with the help
of a QR code and a smartphone. Someone who saw the presentation
pointed me to MoMA's Talk To Me as a current example of a museum
exhibition connecting rich digital content of all sorts directly to
physical objects and places.

I know of a few other tangential examples, but I'm wondering if anyone
else out there is doing anything specifically with in-museum e-books
at all? I'd love to hear about it if you are. Or, if you'll be in
Atlanta next week and can chat in person, that would be great as well,
I'll be there leading a workshop ... on e-books.

Thanks!
Greg

And here's the presentation, in two flavors:

Scheduled:

Thu, 11/17/2011 - 11:00am - 12:30pm

Room: Montreal

Title: Collection Information Manager

Organization: San Francisco Museum of Modern Art



Abstract:

Although digital asset management has been a common topic among museums, 
libraries and archives in the last several years, many of our member 
institutions are still struggling with a lot of issues and processes 
surrounding DAM and its related systems and tools. While many of our members 
are in the process of selecting, evaluating or implementing their 
first-generation of DAM systems, a few early adopters or implementers of DAM 
systems are actively evaluating their existing systems and making plans for 
their future development and growth. The proliferation of new digital media 
types and the explosion of digital assets in museums have made it a more 
pressing issue.



Session Description:



Panelists:



*Emma Wolman, Digital Assets Manager, Portland Art Museum

*Perian Sully, Project Manager, Digital Asset Management and Online Access, 
Balboa Park Online Collaborative

*Megan McGovern, Digital Asset Specialist, Corning Museum of Glass

*David Dwiggins, Systems Librarian/Archivist, Historic New England



Moderator:



*Billy Kwan, Systems Librarian, Image Library, The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Session Description:



This panel discussion gathers members and experts from our diverse community to 
share their DAM implementation experiences. Our panel speakers represent 
museums or archives of various backgrounds and scales, and they all use 
different digital asset management systems. Each one of them will give an 
overview of their system or highlight any particular aspects of their 
implementation. After their presentations, there will be moderated discussion 
on the following topics:



*DAM systems vs. collection management systems

*Data interchanges between the two types of systems

*Metadata structures and standards

*Local collections of digital assets

*Non-still image digital assets, i.e., 3D image, audio and video files

Hi, all!

I'd like to add the *Standards SIG* to the list of Unluncheon adverts.
Anyone who is interested should join us for a discussion at the
Unluncheon/Unmeeting on Friday the 18th from 12:45-2:00pm at Max Lager's.
We're open to discussing any topics of interest, as well as the future of
the group and how we should proceed (what people want, what is most useful,
etc.). We are also looking for a chair or co-chairs for the Standards SIG;
if you're interested in getting more involved, this is a great way to do
it!

Come ready to chat about anything that interests you! Hope to see you there!
