Balancing Museum Technology and Transformation As a challenging economic year for all, especially those of us in the museum and cultural heritage sector draws to a close, we want you to join us in looking ahead to a brighter future. In keeping with our theme we've asked our contributors to look at how the technology we're busy implementing is changing the way we work, how our institutions are being transformed by those technologies and how that transformation can be managed. We're offering a program that is both diverse and comprehensive. Workshops, Sessions and More Whether you're trying to develop an Intellectual Property policy for your institution, learn about the latest imaging technology from industry leaders, or explore the possibilities of building integrated library/museum/archival systems, this is the place to be. And while you learn about the new technologies available, you can see them in our tightly-focused Exhibition Hall.
