The next generation - 'knowledge environments' and digital collections
Fiona Cameron, University of Sydney, Australia

Session: Knowledge Models

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.
