El Paso Museum of History, El Paso TX

The El Paso museum recently opened DIGIE (Digital Information Gateway In El Paso), the only 3-D Digital Wall of its kind in the United States. DIGIE allows community members to upload family and business histories in order to create personal photo albums (either while visitors at the Wall or at home on their personal computer) that can be explored by El Pasoans or by anyone in the world via its website.   In this workshop, attendees will hear about the process, product, challenges and successes of bringing DIGIE to life for the Museum and for the community

RE-ORG: Step-by-Step Storage Reorganization for Small Museums

Re-ORG, developed by ICCROM and UNESCO, is a step-by-step methodology to assist small museums in reorganizing their storage areas for better access and conservation. The focus of RE-ORG is on making improvements to existing storage areas, and not on planning and building new facilities. This webinar is an introduction to the RE-ORG methodology and various tools (both current and upcoming), and to the Canadian Conservation Institute’s RE-ORG: Canada training program.
