Take an Online Survey

October 10, 2008

I was talking to a colleague the other day who noted that practically all museums with websites seem to be somewhere in the process of redesigning them. I couldn't argue because we are ourselves in the early stages of redesigning lacma.org, which I edit and publish. The present format has lasted more or less intact since the beginning of 2006, which is a long time in computer years, and we look forward to making something new and, well, improved. To that end we would like to hear from you, users of museum websites in general and of lacma.org in particular. What works for you about our site? What doesn't? What information should we be better at providing? Take a quick survey and let us know. Here is an example of the kind of advice I'm after: Some time ago I received an unsolicited email from a user. I'm paraphrasing, but what he said was: "Assume we want to see the exhibition, and make it easy for us to do so." I often tell this to museum web people, who always know just what he meant.
