This BBC/ British Museum partnership is interesting. It would have been great if the collections/ objects could have been interpreted in some form of narrative history to make more sense of them. Something about their significance would have been helpful too.
Hi Shruti- The way I see it is there is only advantages to online collections and virtual museums. I find that people from diverse locations can access collections and interpretation who would otherwise have no access to those places. Sure they can't see the actual object, but could they behind glass in a phyisical space? the glass display case is a screen too. Anyway most collections are on display for short amounts of time, if at all, and they are mostly in storage so people can't get to see them often there either. Then there is the added advantage that people can access documatation such as Statements of Significance which makes it clear what collections and museum are all about and why we collect.
I am looking to add social media to the MHC:PHM' Objects through Time' online museum so people can chat and ask questions of the Curator and the audience. Currently working this part out. It's amazing the nuggets of information that comes in randomly from the community about objects that would not have been accessible in the 'old' museum. So there is now 'two way' flow of information between the audience and the online museum and the curator. Neat!
