Williams College Museum of Art Launches Redesigned Website

The Williams College Museum of Art (WCMA) has announced the launch of its new website. The new website, timed to coincide with the museum’s reinstallation project, Reflections on a Museum, ushers in a new era for the museum’s world-wide web presence. The site, now located at http://wcma.williams.edu/, is a new generation model that pulls from various forums to create a dynamic experience for the web visitor. The museum’s blog is much more prevalent, displaying on the homepage and in the footer of the site. The blog allows visitors a behind-the-scenes view into the museum and offers a place for visitors to share their comments on everything from the exhibitions on view to the job of a museum registrar. Web visitors can also easily search the museum’s collection database of nearly 13,000 objects. The search is powered by eMuseum, a web-based software program that integrates with WCMA’s collection database to dynamically publish information to the website.
