Following a Birds of a Feather Breakfast, Mini-workshops, Professional Fora and Information Sessions throughout the day address focused topics. The Crit Room offers live critique of museum Web design, and the Usability Lab illustrates methods of evaluating your Web site from a user's perspective, quickly and efficiently.
