This book offers insights into changes brought about by the enormous growth of the internet. There are new ways to share cultural heritage materials through online finding aids, exhibits, and other initiatives. What has been accomplished across libraries, archives, and museums? The authors consider that question by using case studies to explore activities in 14 libraries, archives, museums, and other heritage organizations. They consider what we can learn from current collaborations within and across libraries, archives, and museums and why some collaborations are successful while others cannot be sustained. Their findings are based on observations and interviews at institutions and organizations in the United States, Australia, and the U.K.

These organizations have worked to make their collections accessible. Some have simply digitized their collections, while others have enhanced their collection management systems. Others have incorporated digital asset management systems to organize and retrieve media, and to manage digital rights and permissions. Most of these institutions and organizations have succeeded through strategic partnerships, strategic planning, and insightful leadership. However, the book also contains examples of institutions that have undergone transitions: one of the museums closed, and another closed its library. Taken together, the fourteen institutions shed light on professional practices today.

Review:

Botticelli, Cloonan, and Mahard, all of the Simmons School of Library and Information Science, examine the impact of digital technology on the convergence of libraries, archives, and museums in the 21st century. The editors have gathered 14 case studies, grouped into five sections, that show possibilities, analyze successes, and guide transitions in situations ranging from closing a site to dispersing a collection. The appendices provide questions and list interviewers; the volume concludes with a bibliography. This book can be a guide for people already working in libraries, archives, and museums, as well as those who wish to consider a role in the sharing of cultural resources. This compact volume is both current- and future-based, showing ways to share and innovate in the field. Recommended.

— Patricia Hogan (Booklist)

A light in the darkness, Botticelli, Mahard, and Cloonan's timely collection will help everyone from aspiring students to current information professionals understand the challenges that libraries, archives, and museums have faced over the past few decades, while exploring potential solutions to our shared information problems. With their engaging prose, positive outlook, and rich research data, the authors encourage us to celebrate our commonalities, embrace our differences, and prepare for a new future of communication, collaboration, and innovation across libraries, archives, and museums. (Paul F. Marty, Professor, School of Information, Florida State University)

Using over a dozen case studies, the authors illustrate how the interests of library, archives, and museums have converged over the last three decades, leading to new opportunities for collaboration and innovation. Libraries, Archives and Museums Today offers readers a rich array of stories about adaptation and transformation of cultural heritage institutions in the digital age. (Karen F. Gracey, Associate Professor, School of Information, Kent State University)
