"This book is a timely offer that will provide both museum workers and audiences with some resolutions in dealing with new challenges emerging from the social media age - this book takes a step further, driving readers to think about questions from a different perspective, such as how museums can help shape the future of the web while being shaped by the web." * Heng Wu, Nanjing Museum " - a very accessible textbook aimed both at museum studies students and at museum professionals wishing to understand and engage with the use of the web and associated media platforms in museums - As someone who teaches a unit in this area, I would use it as one of the readings." * Andrea Witcomb, Deakin University
