The San Jose Museum of Art will design, research, produce, and launch an online collections catalog with interactive and multimedia content highlighting a core set of 50 artists. Designed for release in conjunction with the museum's 50th anniversary, this project will result in a visitor-centered public resource, including information for both the scholarly community and the general public. The updated content will serve as a model for the further development of an online collection database kiosk. This project will analyze how many website users visit the new online catalog, whether they access it from a desktop or mobile device, how long they spend on the site, and which parts of the site most engage their attention. These metrics will be used to inform future in-gallery educational programming and to eventually develop a seamless integration of technology into all viewer-engagement strategies.
