National and Regional Grants to Help Get Your Collection Online with eMuseum

Digital engagement has changed the way audiences interact with institutions, and it’s now expected for museums to display their collection online. Digitizing objects and formatting them for the web can be time consuming and expensive. eMuseum, the award-winning digital publishing software that integrates seamlessly with TMS, helps simplify the process, and available grants can assist with funding. We’ve tracked down some upcoming grant opportunities that can help you implement eMuseum to get your collection online.

    Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established
    blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out
    pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start.
    Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks
