  • CIW at UvACultural Information Science  Current situation   The market for information   Use of Cultural Heritage content  The program   CIW program   Staff and expertise  Student work   Museums online CIW-AW 2012 ICTOP 2 Trilce Navarrete
  • Current situation  The Market of Information   The user expects access to content (for reuse)   Ideally here and now, for free, personalized   The source of the information ceases to be relevant  The information seeker   Information needs depend on context (gender, age, interests, needs, social role, available technology) CIW-AW 2012 ICTOP 3 Trilce Navarrete
  • Current situation Producers Users Adapted from Mackenzie Owen Market for information CIW-AW 2012 ICTOP 4 Trilce Navarrete
  • Current situation  Use of cultural heritage content   It is no longer only on-site   It is not only found in museums   It does not have to be perceived as ‘cultural heritage’ but can be information available for use   It is not only about ‘images’ and ‘facts’ but also about stories (context) CIW-AW 2012 ICTOP 5 Trilce Navarrete
  • Current situation Page 2: Google images After wiki, wall paper, art posters…‘Vermeer the Milkmaid’ CIW-AW 2012 ICTOP 6 Trilce Navarrete

  • Current situation  Museum workers need information skills   Understand the information value in objects   Understand information technology   Strategically position information in the market (e.g. so that it is found by Google)   Communicate with multiple constituents (i.e. users, IT, content producers)   Collaborate across sectors CIW-AW 2012 ICTOP 9 Trilce Navarrete

  • Student work  Group project MA (6 students)  Research questions   What do museums offer about their collections online?   How is that conceptualized, organized and presented?   What results have been achieved by Dutch museums presenting their collections online?   What best practice can be identified for the digitization of museum collections in the Netherlands? CIW-AW 2012 ICTOP 14 Trilce Navarrete
  • Student work  Results   Museums depend on the government for subsidies, so digitization takes place with limited budgets (project base) missing an economic sustainable plan.   41% of collections is image based so access to collections online requires digitization (not only registration).   Digitizations goal: to increase access to collections. However, museums lack goals of use (how much use, what type, by who).   Presentation (incl. participation and search options) could be improved. CIW-AW 2012 ICTOP 15 Trilce Navarrete
  • Student work  Results   On/off-line compete, instead they should collaborate.   Digitization is still seen as additional and optional activity.   Digitization should instead be seen to give continuity and quality to the museum service: the preservation and presentation of heritage information.
