  • THE DIGITAL MUSEUM AS

    PLATFORM

    Cultural Institutions, Libraries and Open Linked Data by GFII, Paris 2013

    Jacob R. Wang, National Museum of Denmark, @jacob_wang

    PrsentateurCommentaires de prsentationThank you for inviting me.

    Ive never wanted to know french more than I do today!!

    My name is Jacob and Im Head of Digital Media at the National Museum of Denmark.

    My work is primarily focused on digital strategy and digitisation. Currently we are working to redefine and modernize our museum into what we call The Digital National Museum.

  • OUTLINE Preamble // The switch from broadcast

    CASE // #HACK4DK

    Digital strategy // Look ahead, act now!

    // Build a platform

  • The National Museum of Denmark Established 1807

    550 employees | 1 million hours | 35 million Euro

  • The National Museum of Denmark Established 1807

    10 million objects| 2 million images | 1 library

  • MISSION The National Museum embody and develop the prerequisites for

    everyone to be able to gain insight into cultural history

    PrsentateurCommentaires de prsentationAnd all our efforts are guide by this statement:

    Our mission: to embody and develop the prerequisites for everyone to be able to gain insight into cultural heritage.

    It might seem a little clunky, but thats my poor translation.

  • Were not in the MONEY-business

    Were in the VALUE-business!

    (RE)USE = VALUE

    Experience economy | Education | Cultural plurality

    PrsentateurCommentaires de prsentationIt might be obvious to many of you, but I feel its important to note nontheless.

    We as museums are not put in the world to make money, were here to make a difference and affect people lives.

    We want to help people gain insight and perspective. For us, USE and reuse of cultural heritage stuff equals value.

  • PrsentateurCommentaires de prsentationVIDEN

    So were about KNOWLEDGE creation and sharing.

    And as you probably know, knowledge needs mediation to be valuable!

    Books are still one the most used media for transmitting knowledge

  • 1950s - Invented and developed

    1990s - Commercially available

  • SO WERE MOVING From broadcast to dialogue

    From product to platform

    From analogue to digital

    PrsentateurCommentaires de prsentationAnd all our efforts are guide by this statement:

    Our mission: to embody and develop the prerequisites for everyone to be able to gain insight into cultural heritage.

    It might seem a little clunky, but thats my poor translation.

  • PrsentateurCommentaires de prsentationIn the fall 2012 Denmark had its first cultural heritage hackathon.

    Inspired by Europeana, who have held a series under the name #hack4europe we called it #hack4dk

  • HACKATHON A hackathon is an event in which computer programmers and

    others in the field of software development, like graphic designers,

    interface designers and project managers collaborate intensively

    on software projects.

  • GREAT MEDIA-

    COVERAGE Hack-a-what?! Sounds interesting!

    GREAT FUN Everybody had a blast!

    COOL PROJECTS Ideas and perspectives from outsiders

  • This hackathon is a good example that ()

    cultural institutions have embraced the digital

    challenge.

    In my view, culture has great potential to become a

    much larger force in the Danish society, and free

    access to culture data is a big step in the right

    direction.

    - Uffe Elbk, Minister of Culture

    PrsentateurCommentaires de prsentationGetting back to my museum, this is where were at right now.

    The world is definately changing around us. New challenges, new practices and new tools are here.

    I admit, its a bit overdramatic, but I really like this image for its ability to illustrate and communicate a sense of urgency.

    And my point obviously is: We, The National Museum, are not where we want to be

  • Further Social Local Mobile Web 2.0

    our work in the years to come!

    PrsentateurCommentaires de prsentationOk, so weve analyzed the situation, now lets call in the strategists!!
