Picking a Platform

Workshop Leader: Tom Scheinfeld, Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, GMU

One of the most difficult questions faced by librarians and museum professionals contemplating digital work is which platform to choose.

  • What is a content management system and which one should I pick?
  • Should I build an app?
  • What are the pros and cons of open source software?
  • Do I even need my own site or can I just use Facebook or YouTube?

This session will engage these questions in an extended period of audience discussion and practical problem solving.
