How can modern technology help you find those missing artefacts?
This presentation explores the benefits RFID technology has for the Museum and Gallery sector by examining the results of a six month trial at a regional museum & gallery.
Advantages covered include increased collection visibility, automatic tracking of objects, ability to quickly locate misplaced items, efficiency in conducting audits and stock takes, and reductions in object handling. We will also explore convergence and its relationship with RFID.
A useful case study for any institution interested in ways technology can help streamline the management of their collection.
Presented By Jessica Allen, LMG Curator at the Museums Australia Conference 2010 in Melbourne.
