Museums and the Web 2003: Selected Papers from an International Conference (7th, Charlotte, North Carolina, March 19-22, 2003).
Bearman, David, Ed.; Trant, Jennifer, Ed.
This is the proceedings of the seventh annual Museums and the Web conference which took place March 19-22, 2003. MW2003 was the premier international venue to review the state of the Web in arts, culture, and heritage. The formal program consisted of two plenary sessions, eighteen parallel sessions, 35 museum project demonstrations, dozens of commercial exhibits, full-day and half-day pre-conference workshops, and one-hour mini-workshops combined with a day-long usability lab, a day-long design "crit room", and the Best of the Web awards. Participants were webmasters, educators, curators, librarians, designers, managers, and directors who work in museums, libraries, archives, historic sites, and the companies that support them. A contents table lists, in alphabetical order by contributor, the speaker, speaker's country, title of the paper, type (paper, workshop, demonstration, etc.), and whether the paper is online.
