Now Available: Live Tweets and Papers Presented at Museums and the Web 2011 Conference
The Museums on the Web 2011 conference in Philadelphia is now in its third day (the conference ends Saturday) and if you’re not not attending there is a steady stream of tweets emanating from the event.
Btw, if you want to focus only on tweets that contain URLs that’s also possible. This search string should do the trick: #mw filter:links
The Museums and the Web 2011 program is available here.
There are a number of presentations that will be believe will be of interest to the library community.
We plan to feature some of the papers as individual posts but for now here are four that we think will be of interest.
- “Rethinking Evaluation Metrics in Light of Flickr Common”
Note: Several authors of the paper are librarians or archivists.
Finally, the winners of “The Best of the Web” awards will be announced at the conference. A list of of the nominated sites/apps/collections and direct inks to each of them can be accessed here. The museums and organizations who developed these sites and apps have done some great work. Both interesting and useful.
