The eMuseum Network: Searching Shared Collections   go to paper

Jean-Philippe Rebuffet, Gallery Systems, USA

The eMuseum Network is a Java Networking Platform designed to access multiple collections, from a single Web site hosted by Gallery Systems, with advanced search features and collaboration tools. This latest project is designed to allow all member museums to share their collection catalogues with each other. Similar to the public access to collections currently provided by many museums on their Web sites, this network provides simultaneous searching and browsing of multiple collections from a single entry point, in a share-and-share-alike fashion.
