Museum of International Folk Art

Useful news and tools will continue soon, but first I have to brag about my library’s home museum. Today the Museum of International Folk Art was named Voter’s Choice Best Museum in Santa Fe by the Santa Fe Reporter.  Santa Fe has many excellent museums, so this is quite the honor. The photo is from a current exhibit, Wooden Menagerie: Made in New Mexico, now  in our Hispanic Heritage Wing.

Alas, the Reporter has no category for best library, but I am feeling winner-ish this week anyway. Together with our partner Library at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture / Laboratory of Anthropology, my own Bartlett Library went live Monday on a brand new Koha system hosted by ByWater Solutions. Since we were migrating from a non-MARC InMagic database set up in the 1990’s, it was … an adventure, to say the least.
