We are grateful to the many individuals and organizations who contributed their time and energy to the Digital Empowerment for Small Museums Project and the Museum Learning Hub – from offering feedback during program development to sharing news about training programs with their networks.




To ensure that Digital Empowerment for Small Museums Project training programs and all future Museum Learning Hub resources were developed with a sensitivity to the needs and priorities of museum professionals at small organizations, our team sought input and feedback from stakeholders throughout the program development process.

Museum Advisory Committee members represented a diverse range of disciplines, career stages, and geographic locations as well as professional networks who serve similar audiences. Program advisors offered guidance and best practices for curriculum development and program delivery.  Student Technology Fellows assisted with toolkit development, marketing research, and online forum moderation.
