Digital artifact collection is now used in museum curation as a method of preserving cultural heritage and engaging communities in exhibit creation. This project, sponsored by Worcester Historical Museum (WHM), developed a website for collecting and storing digital artifacts from members of Worcester’s Albanian community for exhibitions on the history of the Albanian community in Worcester. In order to present a welcoming interface to users and satisfy the archival requirements of WHM, the website supports a robust collection system and displays an understandable user interface. User testing fueled design considerations and provided a basis for recommendations regarding methods to increase website quality and promote community engagement to create comprehensive and informative exhibits.
