Mission Statement
The MCN Small Museum Special Interest Group (SM SIG) is a forum for discussing technology issues faced by people working in small- and medium-sized museums, galleries, and archives. Such institutions often have fewer resources, and less in-house expertise, than do many larger ones. Along with encouraging members to share information with one another, the Small Museum SIG organizes and proposes at least one topical panel for each annual MCN conference. Any MCN member is welcome to join the SM SIG. If you feel that your institution is a small one in terms of its staff, budget, or technology resources, or even if you don't work in such a setting but want to help by sharing information about technology issues in these contexts (solutions to common problems, news of emerging tools or practices, etc.), this is a SIG for you.

The group communicates via the MCN-L listserv with "[SM SIG:]" in the subject line.

The SIG maintains a page of resource links that may be useful to people doing technology work in small museums.
