The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) will present an informational session highlighting how IMLS grants can help meet the technology needs of the museum community. The session will be hosted by Dan Lukash a Senior Program Officer with IMLS. He will discuss specifics about funding opportunities with a focus on IMLS grant programs that are most applicable to assist museums in addressing their institution's individual technology needs and/or bigger issues in the field.

Representatives from a current grantee, the Walker Art Center, will provide first-hand information about developing, submitting, and implementing an IMLS-funded project. They will also discuss their project to significantly enhance the ArtsConnectED web site, including how it was developed based on user feedback to empower users to independently create their own content using an open source platform.
