Authors:Bruno Simon
Publication:MW98: Museums and the Web 1998

The Web site project being undertaken by the « Association des conservateurs de musées du Nord-Pas de Calais (ACMNPDC) » - North and Pas de Calais museum curator association- is a first in France as far as new technologies linked to the diffusion of cultural information via the Internet is concerned. As a matter of fact, the objective is to coordinate the digitizing and cataloguing of the regional museum art works in order to supply a multimedia data base in which every file will include a minimal scientific description and a digital picture of each entry.
