As project coordinator on the Museum side, I can say with certainty, it took a lot of hard work and effort to make this happen. A year ago the Museum team began researching in earnest what functionality a modern museum website needed to have as a base line and then started its wouldn’t it be nice list. In February 2013 we sent out a national Request for Proposal and in March decided to partner with Cuberis out of Durham, North Carolina. You are seeing months of work come to fruition before you.
We still have a few items on our to-do list, but are thrilled to be presenting what you see here today. I would like to thank Mark Johnson for his leadership in approving and finding the funding for the new site. The web working group consisted of Margaret Lynne Ausfeld, Tim Brown, Amy Johnson, Sarah Puckitt, and Tisha Rhodes. Countless other staff came in and out of the workgroup as needed or requested and everyone remembered our flexibility and sense of humor mantra. Let me know what you think of the site. Do you have suggestions for improvements or ideas for us to implement? It’s still a work in progress, so let me know your thoughts.
