PROJECT: Museums and the Web

The 17th annual¬†Museums and the Web, an “annual conference featuring advanced research and exemplary applications of digital practice for cultural, natural and scientific heritage,” was held in Portland, Oregon, April 17-20, 2013.

The winners of the MW2013¬†Best of the Web contest are posted, and feature an excellent selection of sites and applications that make use of narrative, animation, audio or video, and complex interaction with content that “move museum experiences out of the institution and into the realm of the user.”

Proceedings are forthcoming, and videos from the conference are being posted to the MW YouTube channel,¬†including the¬†Opening Plenary¬†by¬†Larry Friedlander, “When the Rare Becomes Commonplace: Challenges for Museums in a Digital Age.”

This post was produced through a cooperation between Caro Pinto, Patrick Williams, and Amy Wickner (Editors-at-Large for the week), Sarah Potvin (dh+lib review editor for the week), and Zach Coble and Roxanne Shirazi (site editors).
