Making Digital Loss Less Painful

9:00am • Making Digital Loss Less Painful: Lessons Learned from the Removal of Historypin’s Mobile Application Kelly Carpenter Although I don’t have all of the answers at this time, I hope to be able to address the following questions in my case study presentation, this fall: - What does this loss of a valued resource mean for our content? - How will our on-site and online audiences be affected? - How is hard work justified after a loss? - Moving forward, should we invest in and develop our own technology instead of taking on the risk of relying on someone else’s technology, even if it is free? - What tools can we utilize in order to make this content available elsewhere for our on-site and online visitors? - How can we adapt to make a loss like this less painful in the future? 9:15am • Rewriting Art History with Art Detective Cristiano Bianchi This presentation will explain the concepts behind Art Detective, how it works and how it could potentually be adapted and reproduced in different contexts to help museums professionals in their curatorial efforts. 9:30am • When You’ve Got It, Flaunt It: Enhancing Discoverability through Wikipedia William Blueher This case study provides an easily replicable model for other institutions to adopt.
