  • Community Engagement, Technology

Want to use technology as a driving force for community outreach? Staff members of the Chandler Museum discuss how embracing the wiki, a simple yet popular web technology, has revolutionized their operations. The wiki increases accessibility to the museums education, collections, and exhibits and has become the museums leading community outreach endeavor. ChandlerpediA, the website produced by this small, local history museum, is a model that any institution can adopt regardless of budget or technological know-how.
