A number of posts have been published on the IWMW blog since the soft launch on 4 February 2016. However I am pleased to now announce the official launch of the IWMW blog.

As described in the initial post:

This blog will cover not just the forthcoming IWMW 2016 event, but also the history of IWMW events and topics of interest to those with responsibilities for managing institutional web services.

Note that guest posts may be published on this blog.

A number of potential contributors have already been approached and the initial series of guest posts will be published this week, including contributions from members of the IWMW 2016 advisory group, previous local organisers of IWMW events and speakers at previous events.

The aim of the guest posts will be to document the history of the IWMW event since its launch in 1997, and thus provide a record of the development and growth of institutional web services over the post 20 years.

We will welcome further posts from members of the web management community. Such posts may be about specific talks or sessions at previous events, cover the social aspects of the events or go beyond specific IWMW events and address the development of web and other digital services across the UK’s higher and further education sector during a period of significant technical, political and economic changes.

Potential contributors are invited to get in touch to discuss possible posts.
