The Museums Computer Group (MCG) is a UK-based independent group for museum, gallery, archive and higher education professionals who work with museum technology and digital heritage. Our members include technologists, educators, academics, marketing people and more working in or around museums and digital technologies, from backend collections systems to the latest social media.
We provide a forum for discussion between technology, marketing, education, outreach, new media, documentation, collections management or traditional IT departments. We connect, support and inspire our members through annual events at museums and other venues throughout the UK, a mailing list and other channels for debate and practical help.
Find us online
The MCG’s e-mail discussion list is a lively forum for support and debate with your peers, and is our main channel of online communication. We’re on Twitter at @ukmcg, or connect with other MCG members at http://www.facebook.com/museumscomputergroup.
