Online Collections Discussion Panel: Advice for Someone Publishing Their Collection Online
At this year’s Axiell LA Roadshow, we held a fascinating discussion panel on the subject of ‘online collections’. Four experts, from institutions such as The Broad and The Getty, explored: harnessing social media, crowdsourcing, 3d scanning and where they think the field of online collections is going.
Here, the panellists discuss making objects easy to find, considering different audience types, why quality is better than quantity and the importance of identifiers for keeping track of objects.
The panellists were: Rich Cherry, Principal, Modern Operations (Chair); Heather Hart, (formerly) Director of IT, The Broad; Julia Falkowski, (Formerly) Web and Interactive Media Producer, Balboa Park Online Collaborative; David Newbury, Enterprise Software Architect, J. Paul Getty Trust (@workergnome).
Please note, Julia and Heather have since moved on to new roles. Heather Hart is now Vice President of Information Technology at The Huntington, whilst Julia Falkowski is now Content Designer at Intuit.
