Museum informatics is an interdisciplinary field concerning the study of the theory and application of information technology in museums. This has developed rapidly over the last decade or two and is still a fast-evolving field. It involves the use of electronic information by museums with respect to the information resources themselves (representation, databases, etc.), the management of those resources, the interaction of museum visitors – both virtual and real – with the resources (e.g., in interactive exhibits and online), including their behavior (e.g., use in the classroom), consideration of collaboration between museums, and the development of associated online communities.
