Google Cultural Institute Reveals How You Can Create Insider Tours and Social Experiences
“Google has a mission to organize and provide access to the world's information,” says Google Art Project Program Manager Piotr Adamczyk.
“Efforts with the cultural sector, like Art Project and Cultural Institute’s platform, use a combination of Google technologies and expert information, which are provided by our partners to create unique online experiences. While building these projects requires a deep understanding of library, archival, and museum practices and standards, we’re providing tools that can be used by a wide array of partners at different stages of cataloging and digitization.”
Piotr will reveal how his Google team is doing it with 230 partners in 44 counties. He’ll discuss reactions to the work so far, present some of its latest attempts to do more online with cultural heritage, and talk about how Google would like to engage with us.
