Description
About the Book

Since the min-1980s, electronic media have assumed an ever greater presence in museums of science, technology, natural history and art. For the the most part, museum directors and curators have embraced new interview technologies for their promise to democratize knowledge, to offer contextual information on exhibits, and to boost museum attendance. Corporate sponsers and donors of museums technology are interested in new media for their own reasons; with their logos emblazoned on interactive kiosks and published gallery guides, corporations have been increasingly active in sponsoring shows, specific gallery spaces, or donating equipment. Museum visitors, especially children and young adults, have frequently responded enthusiastically to interactive exhibits, even coming to expect them as an integral part of the museum experience. Curators supporting the new technology argue that interactive CD-ROM stations offers flexibility and new solutions to the problem of representing complex ideas and processes; as Kathleen McLean argues: “They can active an otherwise static exhibition with sound and moving images; provide a variety of view point; engage visitors in multi-layered activities; and encourage and support interaction among people in an exhibition”.

Preface

This Book- Museums- A New Era of Technology deasl the introduction of interactive multimedia in museum environments has during the last years given rise to great expectations of a new era within museum management, education and interpretation. Visionary members of museum staff have long ago seen the light and given enthusiastic descriptions of the advantages of the new technology. Now, to an increasing degree, commercial companies are also presenting systems designed especially for use in all fields of museum work. The list of the advantages of using information technology in museums is almost endless. Within collection management it is obvious that electronic databases will provide us with wonderful possibilities for quickly accessing abject information, which is of great value in daily curatorial work. What is even more promision and why might really bring some renewal in museum think gar the hitherto undeen possiblitiies for comparing nformation across traditional boundaries. Inside a big museum several departments will be able to use the same data and in this way break down the barriers. This creates the possibility to trace a certain subject through all periods and all geographical areas, despite the traditional academic division of the universe. In the same way, easy exchange of information among museum, small as well as large, cam promote the gathering of information now spread all over the world. The results of this new research work will, after some time be reflected in museum exhibitions, whether it be in the permanent galleries or in interim arragements. In the short term however, the impact of technology on the visitors is most often understood as simply placing interactive systems in the exhibitions and thus giving the visitors access to some kind of information. That information might be part of the curatorial database, in an edited version, or as more often seen, new written stand alone systems dealing with one limited topic chosen from the sphere in interest covered by the museum. In both cases the visitor is given an enhanced, optional opportunity to get information not available in the showcases. It might be access to information about objects in store or information from sources outside the museum. Likewise the technology creates an opportunity for dissemination of information via public networks, mailing of optical discs and whatever might be available in the future.

The precondition for the fulfillment of these vision, is of course the technical development in general. But no need to worry about that, we can now do things e.g. within images storing and handling, that a lay curator (in edp matters) did not dare to dream about 5 year ago. Also the market provides us with database management systems that are affordable and easy to use. Researchers can get in this book all the related information and basically about Indian Museums.
