what will the museum of the future be like?
The Institute of Museum and Library Services, an independent federal agency which is the primary source of federal support for museums and libraries in the United States, has launched a new wiki project called UpNext:The Future of Museums and Libraries.
You can view the wiki and sign up to participate at http://imlsupnext.wikispaces.com. The wiki is a collaborative discussion forum open to individuals from across the museum, library and archive community, at all points in their career and from inside and outside the U.S.
The vision for the wiki is to be a collaborative resource based on The Future of Museums and Libraries: A Discussion Guide http://www.imls.gov/pdf/DiscussionGuide.pdf, available and used by others across the museum and library fields to continue to stimulate discussion and share knowledge about planning, enhancing, enriching and sustaining the future of museums and libraries in the 21st century. From March 3rd- May 12th, two new themes launch on the wiki every two weeks.
As wiki project manager, I'd like to welcome all of you to participate! I would also like to ask the Museum 3.0 community..... Have any of you have done similar projects or used wiki technology in programs, either internally or with the public??
I'm interested in talking with others about lessons learned and experiences (both good and bad!) in social media and web 2.0 projects in the cultural field!
