Editing and audience research in Australian Museum

Dr. Lynda Kelly is Manager Online, Editing and Audience Research at the Australian Museum, Sydney, Australia, and she writes a blog called “Audience Research”. In the interview she explains what audience research means for museums. Dr. Kelly also talks about her theory of three kinds of museum spaces: physical, online and mobile. She encourages museum professionals to think mobile first.

“Ideas for Museums: a Biography of Museum Computing” is a research project about the history of museum computerization. The idea is to collect interviews with museum professionals who were/are working on implementing digital technologies in everyday museum practice.
