This event is brought to you by the Florida State University School of Information

Are you interested in how information science and technology is changing the way people interact with museums and museum collections, in person and online?
Over the past few decades, museum professionals and museum visitors have found their understanding of what museums can and should do dramatically changed by the introduction of new information resources, systems, and technologies.
These changes have prompted a re-shaping of the modern museum environment, as museums grapple with the social implications of new information technologies, and adapt to meet changing needs and expectations, inside and outside the museum.
Join this session to learn more about the information profession in museums, and the field of museum informatics, which studies the sociotechnical interactions that take place at the intersection of people, information, and technology in museums.
Registration is limited, so sign up today!
