     I work for Butterworth-Heinemann, publishers for conservation and 
     museology professionals. I am keen to hear from people who have good 
     ideas for new books in the area, or those who have comments on our 
     existing titles. If you want a copy of our latest catalogue please 
     send me your address.
     
     
     We aim to launch our conservation and museology website very soon. In 
     the meantime please note the following title which is already linked:

     Museums and the Information Age 
     
     SUZANNE KEENE 
     Head of Collections Management, Science Museum, London 
     
     
     Explains the Information Age/Information Economy and the strategic 
     implications for museums Describes the effects of increasing use of IT 
     in museums and its future developments Invaluable for museum staff, 
     multimedia professionals and students Issues are clearly and 
     comprehensively reviewed Accompanying web site keeps readers bang 
     up-to-date
     
     In Brief: Suzanne Keene's pioneering book shows how museums and other 
     cultural organizations fit into the new world of information and 
     electronic communications and, most importantly, how they can take 
     advantage of what it has to offer. 
     
     By using new technology museums can build knowledge bases around 
     information about collections. A collection object can be the central 
     link for information about past and present, places, people and 
     concepts, technologies, ways of working and evidence of the natural 
     world. 'Digital Collections' explains how this vision can be realized. 
     Sound, video and animations can be digitized and developed as a 
     central resource that can be drawn on for many varied access routes: 
     via the World Wide Web; CD ROMs; through on-gallery screens, and other 
     future products still in development. These technological capabilities 
     raise many compelling issues that need to be understood in order to 
     successfully develop information collections. In this book Suzanne 
     Keene reviews these issues clearly and comprehensively. Her 
     accompanying Click-Through Guide provides the latest news and links to 
     Internet information: 
     http://www.users.dircon.co.uk/~s-keene/infoage/infoage.htm Suzanne 
     Keene is a senior manager of museum collections and information at the 
     Science Museum, London. She led the UK LASSI project to select a 
     collections information system for UK museums. This, with her 
     experience in directing information technology and multimedia 
     projects, means that she is accustomed to translating the highly 
     technical concepts of information technology into high level issues 
     for senior and strategic management.
