Why: 

The Museum Blogs [http://www.museumblogs.org] and Museum Podcasts [http://www.museumpodcasts.org] directory sites help unify and disseminate RSS Feeds from museum related blogs and podcasts. The sites with aggregate the combined feeds creating a new RSS feed and an OPML files.

In addition, the sites provide detail pages and free widgets to museums and others. The purpose of these directory sites is raise awareness among the museum community and public at large. Both sites accept contributions from the museum community and are provided as a free service.

These dual-directories should be considered for the Small Budget award as they have essentially been developed with no funding. These directories have been an internal experimental project.
