Abstract(s)
This study focuses on LIMIS (Lithuanian Integral Museum Information System) and Lithuanian public museums, in order to examine the effect of theory to practices of digitization. The complete survey of Lithuanian public museum is conducted (N=69), and the official statistics of Lithuanian museums is referred. The first analysis, Wilcoxon signed-rank test to examine the improvement of digitization environment in subjected museums after LIMIS implementation; as a result, the environment statistically significantly improved between 2008 and 2017. The second analysis, multivariate analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) examines the key factors for the quantity of digitization; as a total result amount of budget for each museum matters for an annual and total number of digitized exhibits. The discussion draws that LIMIS improved the practices of Lithuanian museum, though the significance of digitization in museums is still unstable.
Tato studie se zaměřuje na LIMIS (Litevský integrální muzejní informační systém) a veřejná muzea v Litvě za účelem zkoumání vlivu teorie na praxi digitalizace. Studie uvádí kompletní přehled všech litevských veřejných muzeí zahrnutých do výzkumu (N=69) a také oficiální statistiku týkající se litevských muzeí. Jako první byl pro analýzu použit Wilcoxonův párový test, který měl prozkoumat zlepšení podmínek digitalizace v daných muzeích po zavedení LIMIS; výsledky ukázaly, že mezi lety 2008 a 2017 nastalo statisticky významné zlepšení sledovaného ukazatele. Druhá použitá analytická metoda, multivariantní analýza kovariace (ANCOVA), zkoumá faktory, které jsou klíčové z hlediska kvantity digitalizace; celkový výsledek ukázal, že roční i celkový úhrn digitalizovaných muzejních exponátů závisí primárně od výše rozpočtu jednotlivých muzeí. Ze závěrečné diskuse plyne, že LIMIS přispěl k zlepšení praxe litevského muzejnictví, i když význam digitalizace v muzeích je stále nestabilní.
