The role of museums in online teaching, learning, and research (03 May 2004)
As we rethink our strategy based on user access, the user who says my task is visiting or my task is research, the direction but not the purpose of our work fundamentally changes. We are not permitting institutional needs and cataloging peccadilloes of libraries, archives and museums to define our work. We have turned our heads a bit to look at the millions of people who just want access to what we’ve got.

We may be getting finally to a point of useful convergence while we rethink data and technology issues fully and completely as elements of the institutional mission in teaching, learning and research.
