Reviews

"Cultural Heritage in a Changing World contributes to deepen and expand the debate about the current evolution of the role of cultural heritage in societies on several directions. ... book primarily provides a European perspective to the changes occurring in the cultural heritage domain. ... given the pervasive and rapid adoption of digital technologies worldwide, much of the reflections and findings presented in this book can be useful for cultural heritage practitioners and scholars in other parts of the world." (Enrico Bertacchini, Journal of Cultural Economy, Vol. 41, 2017) "The book gives a comprehensive view on issues of cultural heritage and digital technologies. ... the collection does give an excellent illustration of how the digital age has changed cultural heritage and museums, as well as the methods of adapting to these changes. ... this book is relatively easy to understand, making it suitable not just for professionals, but also students and enthusiasts of the field." (Ashika Prajnya Paramita, Humaniora, Vol. 28 (3), October, 2016)
