About the Client

McLean County Museum of History is a mid-sized AAM-accredited history museum in Bloomington, Illinois. Located in the old county courthouse, which has been beautifully restored to its original grandeur, the museum has four permanent exhibits and two rotating exhibits on a variety of topics in regional history. 

The Project

Relaunched in late 2018, the redesigned McLean County Museum of History website largely focuses on content and structural improvements that make it easier to edit and access their thousands of resources. Using Perch Runway's Collections feature, we vastly simplified the editing process for the Museum's finding aids, allowing them to add hundreds of content items in a matter of hours rather than the weeks it would have taken previously. Additionally, we followed WCAG 2.0 Accessibility Guidelines, making the site more accessible to visitors and researchers alike.
