The way a cultural institution serves its audiences has changed dramatically over the past twenty years. It is time to rethink how collections are described and how the institution’s information systems function so that they can adapt more quickly and effectively to the way people use collections and collections. Building on the thinking that sparked the redesign of INA’s information system, both theoretical and practical aspects of the project and its effects on institutions and audiences will be presented. Questions such as: how do developments in technology affect the way we use collections? How are institutions' needs for database development evolving? How do we create functional data systems? What are the challenges for our sector with evolving technology and new user and staff needs. The event is dedicated to employees of the GLAM sector (galleries, libraries, archives, museums) who deal with data and collections management in their institutions on a daily basis.
