Let's go on a Museum field trip without leaving the building!

To get started, let's find a resource that has museum resources and other information in one place. I like "The Institute for Library & Information Technology" page ( This project, established and maintained at Kent State University, is funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and the U.S. Department of Education. The site includes instructional resources (lesson plans and pathfinders) and web resources (information literacy and lesson planning links; KSU, regional and local resources; and a list of suggested museum websites as resources). This is a great platform to start investigating museums as resources in libraries and classrooms!
