Museum collaboration // Essential bibliography

In this post I will start to list some of the bibliography to be used to get familiarized with essential concepts and ideas that will allow the project to be carried in the most optimal manner.  The bibliography was chosen from the BSc Information Technology in Organizations fron University of Southampton and readings from Museum Studies and Museology.

Due to my visual communication background the Museum Studies readings I will be focusing on the more challenging theories instead on the basic methodology.  On the other hand, IT in Organizations I will be focusing on basic readings to be able to get familiarized with basic concepts.

Image Collaboration

I believe that the approach I will take within these disciplines will create an amalgamation of skills that will enable projects like these to be implemented and future proof.  I am looking forward to collaborate with other museum institutions and curators around the world and perhaps change the method or concept of how we see a museum artifact or a museums in general.
