This issue of the Forum Journal explores two distinct applications of technology in preservation. The first is the documentation of historic places and the management of the resulting historic resource data. The second is telling the stories of old and historic places, which increasingly involves the use of innovations like social media and virtual reality.
Expanding on some of our conversations from the past year, the issue asks fundamental questions about the role technology plays in preservation. When should we adopt new technologies? How can we best use new tools to complement and enhance our tried-and-true methods of saving places? In short, how can technology best help us do our work? The authors delve into the latest documentation techniques and inventory managements systems, talk about what to consider when adopting new technologies, and examine the role of social media in inclusive storytelling.
