The National Jazz Museum in Harlem will develop a new website that provides public access to its digital collections. The museum will hire a web designer to design and build the site. The project will begin with a needs assessment to explore the vision for the new website and the needs of the museum's stakeholders. The website will integrate the museum's digital asset management system, which contains its collections that document the history of jazz beginning in the early 20th century. The museum will streamline its bookkeeping and accounting by building an e-commerce solution into the site. This new platform will allow donations and purchases to take place with one merchant account. Following the launch of the new site, the museum will review user analytics to understand how the site is used and how it can be improved.
