Session: Opening Plenary

The heritage community's ability to empower audiences to more fully interact with our shared stories and collections, by capitalizing on information and communication technologies, is key to its future success. These technological innovations are making it possible for a growing number of heritage institutions to offer individuals a deeper heritage experience that begins even before a visit to a physical exhibit, and continues for a long time afterwards.
