Textiles, dress, and fashion museum website development: strategies and practicesMuseum Management and Curatorship
AbstractMuseums' use of the Internet, including social networking sites, blogs, and virtual exhibits, can provide new and customized learning opportunities for regular and infrequent visitors. These technologies have the potential to assist museums in making their collections more accessible online, increasing public awareness, and broadening the museums' audiences. To better understand the strategies and practices of textiles, dress, and fashion museum website development, 11 museum professionals were interviewed to understand how websites benefited their museums. Challenges and solutions to creating and maintaining online presence, as well as recommendations for textiles, dress, and fashion museum professionals to consider when making their museum and collection information accessible online, are provided.
