Digitized Collection

Museums move collections into the digital space for public access

Implications - Traditional cultural institutions are beginning to digitize their collections and the systems that order them in order to enable access for those unable to visit in person. Such a shift demonstrates the role of virtual museums as key tools for public access to knowledge. This progression ultimately speaks to the interest in democratizing access to education and the prevalence of digital tools in doing so.
