Quality Principles for Cultural Websites: a Handbook

Publications:
Main Document 260kb

MINERVA Working Group 5 ed.

2005

This document provides a commentary and exploration of the ten Quality Principles published by the Minerva project. The ten principles present a high-level vision, and need guidance on implementation and assessment. This document adds supporting information for each of the principles, and, for each of the ten principles, provides:
a commentary, providing interpretation, background information and motivation for the principle
a set of criteria which can be used to assess whether a Website is compliant with the principle
a checklist, based on the criteria, which can be used in assessing the Website
a set of practical and pragmatic tests and questions which a Website owner can use to gain further insight into the compliance of his site.

The ten principles are aimed at cultural Websites - those developed by museums, libraries, archives and other cultural institutions. However, the principles are quite generic and can be applied to almost any Website. This document adds a cultural emphasis to the principles, where this is appropriate and adds value.
