Museums are “going digital” to reach and engage with new global audiences, explore new and more effective business models, and leverage collections as platforms for creation and co-creation of knowledge and ideas. Successful digital engagement requires holistic planning and an “omnichannel” approach that adapts global technology trends to the cultural environment. This session will present models and methods that museums might use to make decisions, evaluate current practice, and integrate digital methods into their work. Panelists are contributors to the forthcoming Manual of Digital Museum Planning.
