David Bearman, Founding Partner of Archives & Museum Informatics in Toronto, consults for cultural institutions on information strategy. Since leaving the Smithsonian Institution (where he was Deputy Director of the Office of Information Resources Management) in 1986, Bearman has directed his own consulting firm which specializes in developing new business models and economic frameworks for archive and museum consortia, that take advantage of information technologies to rethink their approaches to management and delivery of cultural resources.

Bearman has been responsible for guiding the development of a national information system for archives in the U.S., national policies towards electronic records management in several countries, national and international museum collaborations and network initiatives, and the definition of a variety of archival, museum, library and publishing non-profits that exploit and develop information standards.

He blogged, occasionally, here.
