Cedar Falls Historical Society (Iowa); Web sites--Design;


Web sites are a growing media application for conveying information to anyone with Internet access. The creation of a web site for the Cedar Falls Historical Society was designed to provide the community an opportunity to access the organization's activities, schedules, and special events and to become knowledgeable about museum facilities as well as the history and historical personalities of the local area. The site contained information on membership, donations, structure, and other useful information.

I met with the Historical Society Board of Directors and presented a description of the scope, benefits, logistics, time frame, and cost of the project. Permission was requested to use Historical Society resources and publications and to obtain staff cooperation pursuant to the project. The Board accepted the proposal, and it was agreed that a demonstration of the working web site would conclude the scholastic work on the project. Approval by the University of Northern Iowa Department of Curriculum and Instruction and the student advisor was also obtained. A demonstration of the working web site was presented to the Board and committee members upon completion of the project.
