Hold on now...have you all seen the “volunteer” jobs page at the @MorganLibrary? themorgan.org/opportunities/… It was just been brought to our attention and 👀. They are replacing essential roles that should be good paying jobs with...let’s look more closely... /1
A Volunteer Departmental Research Assistant for the Manuscripts Department. Phd required. Reading knowledge of French and German. Accruing that experience takes time and debt. You’re a major NYC museum. What’s going on @MorganLibrary, are you hurting for money?? Let’s see... /2
We’re looking at your most recent financial statement now. $367,845,999 in assets. $8 mil in cash. We’re sure you have very good reasons for why this money is needed for other things and can’t go toward for dept assistants...but hear us out... /3

So recently I got to visit the Tycho Brahe museum on Ven, a Swedish island in the Øresund strait where the wind moves through wheat fields like waves on the ocean landskrona.se/en/se-gora/kul… @landskronastad #ITweetMuseums
The museum is in a church building that was deconsecrated in 2003 - the museum makes use of its location to interpret the worldview of Brahe's time
And the museum also makes use of the island itself, doing one of those things where they have a sun and then to-scale planets located along the main path (I've seen this on the grounds of the Smithsonian too, but I really adore the wiry golden sun here)

Learning about digital project evaluation today with my Smithsonian colleagues, led by @KateHG4 and @digitaleffie. Not strictly #musesocial but I think evaluation + social = hard and it's worth learning more about it wherever we can.
Do you use a logic model to plan #musesocial? I have for on-site programs I used to coordinate but have rarely gotten to for social media engagement projects. It's usually a thing that shows your audience, your activities, your outcomes, and your indicators/metrics/measurements.
Why use a logic model? @KateHG4 recommends it because they help you spot gaps. Like "oh we have literally no activities that will help us meet X goal." Or "this activity has no resources/inputs dedicated to it."

Cultural Platforms and Digital Participation - digital allows you to develop and disseminate narratives for your museums in a new form, and the ability to connect with distant audiences across the world. #VCday2018 @Indigo_H_J #MuseSocial
But there are barriers to digital participation - remote communities, aged and Indigenous folk are the least represented in the digital sphere
#VCday2018 @Indigo_H_J #MuseSocial
'Publics' r social groups that form around knowledge & the narratives tht result from tht knowledge (Hartley and Potts). Your non digital publics might be yr local community,your digital publics are those who visit your website/your social media #VCday2018 @Indigo_H_J #MuseSocial

Alright, #musetech nerds! Here's what we covered in week 2 of "Museums and New Media" at @GUmuseumstudies...
First, an oldie but goodie: 1998 Morrisey and Worts list article lists a range of interpretive strategies for engaging visitors using technology (think outside mere content delivery!) academia.edu/9284639/A_Plac…
Next up: Listen to @TylerGreenDC @peterdueker @annecgoodyear on @kojoshow debate the impact of digitization on how people view and experience works of art. Does super zoom kill artistic intent and destroy the museum business model? You decide! danamus.es/2013/07/02/mus…
