A current research project in the Centre for Digital Humanities Research by Senior Lecturer Dr Katrina Grant and Sean Minney, a recent graduate from the Masters Advanced of Digital Humanities and Public Culture is looking for participants in a short survey (30 questions) on how people employed in the GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) sector are using digital tools and software in their work.
It builds on a survey conducted in 2019 looking at collaboration between curatorial and IT workers in GLAM carried out by Sean Minney for his Masters Thesis. The survey is unpublished but you can read a summary of it here : https://metodhology.anu.edu.au/index.php/2021/01/14/digital-transformation-in-the-australian-glam-sector-staffing-differences/
The project is particularly interested in how collaboration between people in different areas of an institution might support efforts to create digital content for external audiences. This might include, but is not limited to, digital exhibitions, digital games, podcasts, social media engagement, web-based resources, etc. We are also interested in how the effects of Covid shutdowns might have changed the use of digital content in different institutions.
You can access the survey here and read the full details on the Participant Information Sheet.

We will make details of the planned publication available via this website.
