This paper will examine the development process utilized in the construction of an on-line photo library which addressed and incorporated an on-line payment solution for the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery at the University of Glasgow. The aspects of the development process that are discussed include the perspective of the Museum’s organizational strategic planning aims, the technical requirements, the challenges encountered within a large organizational system with long-established working practices and how the issues introduced by these practices were eventually overcome.
