Session: Managing Content

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art has begun a major cross-departmental initiative to bring its collections management database online and integrate the contents of the collections database within a new search engine. From media-rich, Flash-based multimedia content to public programs information stored in a SQL database, the new site-wide search engine will integrate data from several disparate sources into a seamless, web-based engine for the Museum's varied audiences.
