Educational and Cultural Institutions in the Digital Age

This short work by the Secretary of the Smithsonian G. Wayne Clough – Best of Both Worlds: Museums, Libraries, And Archives in the Digital Age – highlights the responsibilities cultural and educational institutions have in disseminating their collections so that all individuals, regardless of their background, can benefit from our national treasures. “Certainly the challenges of digital transformation are formidable, but if museums, archives, and libraries can learn different behaviors, they can take on a new and elevated role. By combining the strengths of our physical collections with the potential afforded by digital technology, we can truly offer the best of both world.”(3)
