CALL FOR PAPERS
The Journal of Digital Libraries (Springer)
Special Issue on Digital Museum
Museums play an important role in collecting, organizing, conserving,
exhibiting the cultural and artistic heritage of the world. With the
development of digital museums, the museum collections may now be
and disseminated in digital form using new media and networked channels.
This presents powerful opportunities to overcome the geographical or
logistical obstacles that hinder people from visiting the physical sites
museums. If we consider the fact that museums normally have not more
of their holdings in their exhibitions, it offers for the first time the
possibility to make the total of knowledge kept in museums available to
research and the interested public. Since cultural information obtains
of its relevance from thorough understanding of wider contexts and the
variances of analogous phenomena in different environments, digital
also open the vision to be able to research relevant information spread
a multitude of disparate information sources.
With the objective to enable people to explore the collections for
inspiration, learning, and enjoyment, digital museums particular
the mechanisms to balance the interests of documentation, education and
entertainment. From this perspective, the on-going convergence of
libraries and digital museums into integrated information spaces seems
only at its beginning. Many issues, including intellectual,
legal, economic, organizational, and design concerns from the
museum's applications, need to be explored.
Recognizing the importance of the research in digital museum issues, The
Journal of Digital Libraries is organizing a special issue on Digital
Museum. The primary focus of this special issue will be on high-quality
original unpublished research, case studies, as well as implementation
experiences in the areas pertaining the issues in digital museums.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
* Information integration and knowledge environments
* Information access, dissemination, and use
* Identification of cultural objects in digital resources and
* Data models, metadata models, ontologies for cultural heritage
* Multimedia techniques for representation, presentation and display
* Digitalization and annotation of real world artifacts
* Case studies, experiences, trials, and evaluations of digital museum
Submissions are invited from researchers and professionals examining and
applying information technologies to cultural heritage, including policy
makers, humanities scholars, archivists, information specialists,
publishers, museum curators, and educators.
