dc.description.abstract Digital technology is a pervasive aspect of contemporary society and its influence on narrative has been profound. In the realm of museums digital technology is significantly altering the way museums create and disseminate narrative. Using survey research, this study examines the influence of digital technology on the narrative of American art museums. By surveying museum professionals working in American art museums narrative and technological trends can be identified. This research presents three major findings. First, museum professionals identify American art museums as narrative environments. Second, American art museums are using digital technologies for narrative purposes. Third, digital technology has directly influenced the narrative of American art museums. Recommendations for further areas of study are suggested based on the findings of this research.
