Half of the museums planning to publish their collection online in 2016 have done it…… Did the other half give up? This is the second year that Vernon Systems has surveyed New Zealand and Australian Museums about how they share their collections online. While the response is encouraging, these results only represent a small segment of Australasian Museums. This year we had 73 responses, and last year the number was 79, from a possible 500 that were sent the survey.
Last year we contacted you with our Museum Survey. We were very happy with the response we had from Australian and New Zealand museums. Our survey looked at whether museums shared their collections online, and if so, how. The results can be seen here. This year we are following up the survey. Please take a few minutes to answer a few quick questions. All answers will remain anonymous and we are happy to share the results. Enter the survey here.
