Museums Computer Group (MCG) Museums on the Web (UKMW)

The Museums Computer Group (MCG) is a professional society for museum, gallery, archive and higher education professionals who work with museum technologies and digital heritage. The MCG organises the annual UK Museums On The Web (UKMW) conference for people who make museum websites great. UKMW12 will be held in London on 30 November 2012.

With a theme of ‘strategically digital’, UKMW12 provides an opportunity to think strategically about the impact of the digital revolution on museums and digital heritage projects. The sold-out conference brings together speakers from organisations including the Tate, the V&A, UCL, King’s College, the Guardian, Strategic Content Alliance, Collections Trust and Caper who’ll share their hard-won lessons about implementing digital strategies in museums, and the realities of working with online audiences and platforms.
