I am an educator at the New Britain Museum of American Art in New =
Britain, CT. We are currently working on developing a website, and in =
the process have completed some research that may be of help. As far as =
your questions are concerned, we are a small museum with only seven =
professional staff members, so we are all sharing the responsibilities =
for developing the site as a group. Hopefully, the committee process =
will give us good results!

You are probably already aware of this resource, but just in case: In =
March there was a wonderful conference on the topic of Museums and the =
Web in Los Angeles, sponsored by Archives and Museum Informatics out of =
Pittsburgh. Museum professionals from all over the globe shared =
information on the issues particular to museums when approaching =
internet technology. Many of the papers from this conference are listed =
on the AMI website: There are also links to =
other sites that might be helpful to your research. It's a wealth of =

I would like to thank Annie Blood-Pattersons who made some very helpful =
comments regarding museum websites the other day. We'd love to get more =
comments on good and bad sites out there!
