Museum Computer Network
The history of MCN spans more than 45 years, a period during which technology and information technology in particular developed at an exponential pace. In 1967, an informal grouping of museums in the New York City area established the Museum Computer Network (MCN) with the goal of automating their registration records. With funding from the New York Council on the Arts, MCN developed a prototype mainframe network that was shared by participants from 1968 to 1971. When the funding ended in 1971, MCN was formally incorporated as a nonprofit organization that has since attracted members from around the world. As new technology superseded the original shared registration system, MCN evolved into a network of dedicated professionals wishing to improve their means of developing, managing, and conveying museum information through the use of automation. Through annual conferences that began in 1972, MCN has supported the dissemination of information about the use of computers in museum practice. MCN continues to foster innovation and excellence today by supporting professionals who seek to transform the way their cultural organizations reach, engage, and educate their audiences using digital technologies.

Reading & Research: 101 Vital University Library Websites
For students, the most important aspect of a library might well be its web page, the portal through which the library’s digital collections are accessed.

The University library websites on this list offer varying levels of access, but many of them have amazing informational assets that savvy researchers should know about, including:
– Databases of scholarly journals
– Digitized versions of historical documents
– Instructions for properly citing sources in APA, MLA, and other recognized styles
