New Zealand Web Site wins International Award

New Zealand Web Site wins International Award

Global Museum, a 'one-man publication' published from Auckland, New Zealand has won a prestigious Museum Award for Best Museum Professional's Site against better resourced competition.

Museums and the Web 2004 recognise achievement in heritage Web site design and was a key component of a conference held recently in Arlington, VA

The selected finalists were:

Smithsonian Education

The CODART list of museums with Dutch and Flemish art

Global Museum

And the Winner was: Global Museum

Judges Comments: I know many of my colleagues make extensive use of Global Museum resources, in particular its Jobs posting service is widely used by both those seeking work and agencies seeking contractors and staff. Despite its very general content focus, there are some very rich areas like the Conservation section in the Ideas area. Here can be found a diverse and very useful grouping of online documents covering a wide range of Conservation practises.
