One of the first books of its kind, Museums and New Technologies combines museological theory with a systematic assessment to examine how information and communication technology is transforming the role of the museum.Maria Economou argues that museums cannot afford to shy away from new technology, and as this wave spreads that they need to make informed decisions about the appropriate use of these powerful tools in the reshaping of exhibition, education and interpretation practice.For museum professionals wishing to embrace this new technology to enhance and build their museums towards the future, and for students of this fascinating discipline, this is a must-read.
