I oftenwish I had this at my fingertips when visiting a museum,particularly when I read about the media an artist used. Thedefinitions are excellent, and appreciate the visual examplesfrom the collection.”

  20. 20. Approach to social media- Pick the projects that resonate (there’s a reason we never did MySpace)- Avoid blatant marketing—people will see through it immediately- Talk about related content that extends beyond the institution- Participate and ask for participation- Find a voice, be human- Advocate internally- Listen, listen, listen
  21. 21. In general, our efforts are geared towards:- enhancing the experience pre-, post- and during the museum visit- offering resources online to those who will never visit the museum- working collaboratively across departments to create and enhance interpretive materials, with a focus on the collection- centralizing content for multiple distribution on and all relevant digital channels; separate out content from distribution- using a variety of digital channels to foster two-way communication and dialogue with visitors
