Published paper: Where Are The Edit and Upload Buttons? Dynamic Futures for Museum Collections Online.

That potential has yet to be exploited. Collections instead continue to be presented as “online card catalogs,” even as the rest of the web has transitioned towards participation as an expected norm. Our online collections are more vibrant than ever (better data, better images, more multimedia), but where are the edit and upload buttons?
