The disruptive influence of digital information management for cultural heritage has been expressed in many spheres, especially in the realm of information sharing and data collection volumes. Although these disruptions have had enormous advantages for enhancing research, curation and accountability; they have been accompanied by associated challenges for storage, usability and appropriate access. This paper examines some of the ways in which different organisations within Australia and around the world are currently approaching these challenges and investigates the Heurist knowledge management system as a cloud-based tool for the management of all aspects of cultural heritage data.
