Rae Earnshaw is Pro Vice-Chancellor (Strategic Systems Development) and Professor of Electronic Imaging and Media Communications at the University of Bradford, and John A.

This movement is impacting on the development and organization of libraries, museums, and exhibitions, and the way in which physical and digital aspects are mediated to users. The changes are substantial and likely to be long-lasting. Edited by internationally renowned authors, Professor Rae Earnshaw and Professor John A.
