Abstract

The Smithsonian American Art Museum has adopted a long tail strategy of Web publishing. The paper describes the emergence of Web 2.0 as a precipitating factor, outlines the long tail strategy, and details the main components of the museum's long tail strategy. The long tail strategy aims to engage niche markets. While the k-12 educational market is large, it is one of many constituent groups served by the Smithsonian. How the museum integrated educational content into a long tail web publishing model is described.
