MITH Digital Dialogue: Sheila Brennan, "Getting to the Stuff: Digital Cultural Heritage Collections, Absence, and Memory"

Cultural heritage collections represent important sources for scholars and enthusiasts, and offer ways for us to listen and learn from peoples and processes that are missing from documentary sources. Museum collections help to fill those gaps, but finding those types of collections and data online is challenging. With many students and scholars beginning their research with online search and discovery tools, if cultural heritage collections are not visible online, in some form, what are the implications of these absences? Do those objects and the stories that they help us to tell remain invisible? {Will appear in FYI on Nov 26, 2012
