The growth of mobile internet access coupled with advances in technologies for aggregating and searching collections data has opened important debates about how mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets might be used to enrich the way we engage with cultural information.

Museums, galleries, libraries and archives are among the key cultural institutions grappling with the legal and technical challenges of balancing visitors’ changing expectations with creators’ and publishers’ rights and their own well-established practices in cultural information management, following the adoption of digital collections management systems.

At present, the UK museum sector is experiencing a digital Research and Development phase with numerous development programmes underway exploring the role of smartphones and tablets inside and outside cultural venues. Similarly projects supporting the aggregation of collections data at local, national and European level have received significant funding in recent years.

The conference will bring together experts from the UK and the US engaged with the use of mobile devices in their respective cultural sectors.

Mobile Collections is a Research Project based at CRASSH funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) with Creative Economy Knowledge Exchange funding.
