  33. 33. Being digital-first is about more than adopting new technologies. It means prioritizing the needs of our audiences and users, engaging them with relevant, compelling content, and meeting them wherever they seek information. To do this, we need to build digital skills and sensibilities into the organization; ensuring the knowledge we produce can be preserved, accessed, linked, and integrated into the global information ecosystem. Greater Reach, Greater Relevance, and Profound Impact
  34. 34. Greater reach and engagement, measured by macro-level metrics for online audiences and by qualitative assessments of the visitor experience, both onsite and online Continued progress in collections digitization Greater Reach, Greater Relevance, and Profound Impact
  35. 35. “Digital First” organizational transformation, measured by hiring of staff with critical skills, training of existing staff in digital skills, funding allocated to digital requirements, etc.
  36. 36. Thank You & Questions The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible. – Arthur C. Clarke
