|Title:||The Next Generation—‘Knowledge Environments’ and Digital Collections|
|Publication:||MW2003: Museums and the Web 2003|
Despite recent technical advances in collections access and interpretation, most notably on the World Wide Web, a number of key issues still remain. A sustained consideration, beyond technological innovation, to pragmatic concerns arising from current acquisition and documentation practices and data quality is necessary. Coupled with this, a consolidated response is required to recent post-structuralist, postmodern epistemological, disciplinary and museological debates about knowledge making and meaning construction and how current collections information relates to, and revises these themes.
