Next Practices

Recently, the Association of Art Museum Directors published “Next Practices in Digital and Technology.” The project “includes 41 submissions from our members, exploring a wide range of ways to apply digital technology—from social media and mobile apps, to in-gallery interpretation of works and enhancing visitors’ experiences, to improving public access to data as well as behind-the-scenes collections management. It also showcases how AAMD members are integrating digital tools in their operations and programs, and rethinking how museums approach membership, accessibility, scholarship, education, and visitor services.”

Visual Resources + Digital Humanities

 

John Taormina, the Director of the Visual Media Center at Duke University, has begun a blog on Digital Humanities that focuses on how Visual Resources professionals can interact with and contribute to this growing field.

From the first post: This Visual Resources + Digital Humanities site is intended to be a forum for information about how the visual resources professional can support and interact with digital humanities practitioners, projects, and initiatives. Information on digital humanities projects and activities, conferences and workshops, digital tools, and bibliographies can be posted here. I’m very much looking forward to using this resource as it grows…

Incidentally, Duke has an amazing program on Digital Humanities and Art History. The site can be found here
