Title:Extending the Virtual Museum: Integrating Museum with Other Kinds of Websites
Authors:George Landow
Publication:MW2001: Museums and the Web 2001

Museums face problems letting people know what they have and providing a context so people can understand them and their importance. George Landow, a pioneer in hyperlinking, runs 3 interlinked websites totalling more than 40,000 docs and images, two of which are recommended by NEH, the ministries of education in France, Ireland, and BBC. These sites (the Victorian and Postcolonial Webs) contain thousands of documents and images from real and virtual museums. Strategies for integrating museum content onto such thematic webs are discussed.
