|On March 15th, 2012, Panopticon hosted a guest lecture with David Dwiggins entitled, Collections Access Project Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Chenhalls Nomenclature. Can librarians, archivists, and museum professionals ever see eye-to-eye? Can their collections be presented side-by-side? Would users benefit if they were? When Historic New England, the nation’s oldest and largest regional heritage organization set out to put all of its collections online in a single database, staff suddenly found themselves thinking about questions like these. In addition to providing an overview of the organization’s Collections Access Project, this presentation will consider the ways in which new technology dissolves traditional divisions between information and curatorial professionals.
