    • AMUM, the University of Memphis' Art Museum, created an educational website devoted to the work of African-American architect Paul Revere Williams, the "architect to the stars." With the assistance of libraries and archives from across the country, AMUM assembled a comprehensive bibliography, verified and collected images of Williams' works, and enhanced the images with background text to create a research tool useful for K-12 students, college architecture majors, researchers, or the general public. The presenters describe the development of the project, giving particular attention to the collaboration between art historians, archivists, librarians, and the public.
