Technology Watch Reports
The DigiCULT Technology Watch Report is a major annual volume, covering six
technologies expected to have a substantial impact on the future of cultural
heritage projects, professionals working in the sector, and approaches to
cultural materials. Their primary aim is to give a solid and impartial
grounding in new and developing technologies to those without the time or
the IT confidence to gain an independent familiarity, together with a view
of the changing technological and methodological landscapes.

Technology Watch Briefings
DigiCULT Technology Watch Briefings are essentially early draft versions of
the chapters that go on to make up the Technology Watch Reports. Appearing
at regular intervals throughout the year, TWBs offer the wider cultural
heritage community an opportunity to track the development of the shape and
content of the forthcoming TWR, and to offer suggestions for changes via the
online comments system.
There are no Technology Watch Briefings currently available.
