Best Small Museum Web Site

Waterford County Image Archive

Designed by an all volunteer effort. The Image Management Software was written free of charge by Déise Design. Our museum has an annual budget of 7000 Euros (8300 Dollars). All of our committee members & image collectors are unpaid volunteers. We have 4 part time employees that work 20 hours per week in the museum. They are members of a government work programme for the unemployed (Fas CE Scheme).

Judges' Comments

I was very taken by the fact that this site was developed with no budget at all, just volunteers and donated expertise and support. Nevertheless it provides an excellent archival resource and a timely reminder that we don't all have the human and financial resources of the big organisations, yet it is still possible to produce useful, good quality resources.
