Docent Web: An Online Resource Center for Docents (2013 SF)

Indianapolis Museum of Art


Presenters from the Indianapolis Museum of Art will discuss how, using the Museum's document management software, the docent program created an online resource center for docents. Docent Web allows docents to log on from home or any other location with web access to view or print tour and training schedules and access extensive research material. Both Docent Web and DropBox are being used to share images and charts of the growing collection of resource material used on iPads for docent tours.

Presenters: Kristin Mohlman, docent (eleven years), instrumental in bringing the first version of online access to Museum docents), former Manager of Docent Programs (2011); Jennifer Todd, docent (seven years), current Manager of Docent Programs, content manager for Docent Web, and coordinator of the iPad project (managing content through DropBox)
