Changi Museum News?

Category : museum

In May 2005, I introduced blogging to Museum Roundtable members as an example of free, old technology that allowed us to share interesting aspects of museums no one ever heard about.

I had adopted this finally for Habitatnews (Feb 2004) and Raffles Museum News (Jun 2004) and it had worked well.

Despite significant enthusiasm, the workshop was poorly attended and only one participant persisted, barely! I realised potential writers from within the museum would have to emerge first; and preferably in the know of their museum's happenings.

Although the Museum Roundtable purportedly came up with, the Feb 2006 meeting, I was the only museum representative there - it really was and is an effort between a few NHB staff and several bloggers, who generate some original content, harvest existing material and recruit new contributors.

Happily, after the last Museum Roundtable meeting, the Changi Museum folk came over to chat about blogging. They will have a staff write as part of her job, and she is enthusiastic about it.

The few news bites they shared with me sounded really interesting! They also have stories sent in by ex-servicemen and their families - what a great platform to share this with.

The blog posts will be appreciated by readers, and some of the material can be highlighted by

Jada from Singapore General Hospital whom I met at a Roundtable workshop last week is enthusiastic - she went as far as this before, on her own. She does drop by the NUS Medical Library next door often enough and a single tutorial has been promised.

Now all we to do is meet up!
