Abstract
26-28 July 2006. Digital technologies are often said to be 'disruptive technologies'. Well known examples are the effects on the music industry of downloading digital music files, and of digital photography on the photographic and image industry. The question is, will these developments affect museums, or are they for some reason immune to these disruptive effects? Possible candidates discussed include collecting digital materials, social software, and tagging, syndication and RSS, which may drive pressure for greater access to actual collections.
