The paper will:
investigate whether a canon of foundational texts about museum technology is being developed and by whom
identify which sources and modes of communication are deemed most effective for staying abreast of the latest research and trends in museum technology
interrogate the processes currently in place for training the next generation of museum leaders on the purposes and philosophies of museum technology
