	Boston, Massachusetts, USA

The preliminary program for Museums and the Web 2002, to be held 
April 17-20, 2002 at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel, Boston, 
Massachusetts, USA is now on-line.

Now in its sixth year, Museums and the Web examines the current state 
of the Web for museums, culture and heritage world-wide. Museum 
professionals and digital library researchers will present their 
ideas and latest findings. Papers, selected by an international 
Program Committee from hundreds of submitted proposals, will explore 
theory and practice for museums on-line at both beginning and 
advanced levels.

MW2002 has something for all members of the cultural heritage community.

         * Pre-conference workshops sharpen your skills.
         * Program sessions explore current issues and research.
         * Crit Rooms enable 'real time' review of web sites.
         * The Usability Lab features live user-testing of actual sites.
         * Demonstrations allow up close examination.
         * The Exhibit Hall profiles new technology and services
           to help you build and manage your web site.
