Published paper: Digital Archiving and Public Service of Paris Musées: Case study of Bourdelle Museum

Since January 2013, Paris Musées is an organization that brings together all different departments working for the 14 civic museums of the city of Paris into a single entity. The digital department of Paris Musées is in charge of all the digital projects of the 14 museums including website, social network, interactive display, application, etc. Besides that its aim is to include a digital vision into the museums projects.
Thanks to an active global digital archiving strategy, the computerization and digitalization of the collections for all the 14 museums are going fast. The project of the online collection has been launched on the beginning of 2014. It will finish at the end of 2015 with the online publishing of the semantic and collaborative portal. At the beginning of July 2014, 22% of all the collections were in the database (ADLIB). Concerning the Bourdelle’s museum, 61% of the objects were computerized. Thanks to this work, the digital department and the educational services can work together to create different projects.
The Bourdelle museum is the perfect example of this strategy. Before the 2013, the museum has no digital equipment. Nowadays, a website has been created, and a lot of projects will be finished at the end of 2014 to promote the artist but also the museum where was the
permanent living and creation place of the artist (Web documentary, Accessibility tools, ...).
