Tool Petting Zoo: Getting Hands-on with Airtable and Other Tools for Collections, Exhibitions, Project Management, and Content Strategy, and Workflow

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Join this session to meet real live examples of museums getting creative with collaborative tools to support their work. Several presenters will provide focused demonstrations of Airtable, Trello, Slack, and more. They’ll illustrate how their teams leverage free or inexpensive software to establish and optimize workflows for digital content strategy, social media, exhibitions planning, collections data, project management, and professional development. In addition to our pre-planned presentations, we’ll crowdsource problems in search of a solution and invite attendees to share their own favorite tools with the group. Then we will open the room to the “tool petting zoo”: hands-on demonstrations and consultations in which participants can test drive the tools shared in the overview and begin building their own.

Deep Dive sign-ups open Wednesday, September 9. Space is limited and advance registration is required—so mark your calendars! Once sessions are filled, there will be a waitlist and MCN will notify attendees as spots become available.
