Each year the Museums and the Web conference, put on by Archives & Museum Informatics, picks winners for their “Best of the Web” awards, which recognize “the best work in museum web design and development.”
This year there are some fascinating sites among the recipients. See a few highlighted below, and go to the Museum and Web web site for a complete list of the award winners.
A few “Best of the Web” winners:
- The National Archives’ Digital Vaults
- A photography exhibit by the University of New Mexico Maxwell Museum of Anthropology that includes a tool to produce a short patriotic film using photos taken for the Office of War Information in the 1940s
- The Chicago History Museum’s "Great Chicago Stories" site for elementary and high school students, which was developed collaboratively with local educators.
