This introduction to a special edition of the Journal of Museum Ethnography offers a review of the ways in which museums with world cultures collections are using digital technologies to promote new ways of working with collections, audiences and stakeholders. It explores historical precedents of employing 'new technologies' in museums and considers the implications of using ICTs in museums for access, equity, conservation and collections knowledge.The article also examines the limitations of ICTs in terms of sustainability, availablity and ethics.
