Keywordsorganizational change, Web site redesign

The Museum of Science (MoS) recently redesigned its Web site from the ground up. Everything was replaced -- new design, new hardware, new content management, new stats tracking. To successfully implement a Web site with this much change required a great deal of participation from departments and staff throughout the Museum. In this paper we discuss the organizational change that spurred the Museum to update its Website, along with the change caused by its implementation.
