Museums and libraries: A roadmap for collaboration

Room 325/326

Join the Zoom Event

In this session, UW–Madison Libraries staff will share their experience and lessons learned from a recent partnership that extended the Libraries’ digital collections infrastructure to meet the needs of the Chazen Museum of Art. Join us to learn valuable lessons from a successful cross-campus collaboration, and take away strategies to effectively engage in large, complex IT projects with external partners you can apply to your own work.

Attendees will:

  • Learn how the Libraries’ existing architecture, built from loosely coupled components, ensures that new features automatically become available for future collaborations
  • Discover how project partners can take advantage of selected components that best suit their needs
  • Understand how sustainability features of the core infrastructure are automatically applied to new partnerships
  • Gain insights into standardized, flexible project management techniques that contribute to successful collaboration
  • Explore ways to engage with stakeholders with varying levels of expertise and resources to gather requirements, meet usability goals, and participate in the design process
