Brief description Museums globally are grappling with the problem of improving the communication and interpretive capacity of their collections. Although there is also a growing commitment to collections research and documentation, significant and sustained research has yet to be done. Substantial resources have been put to public programs and collections outreach however, collections management and research had lagged behind. A new multidisciplinary, multimedia knowledge structure, multimedia delivery system and its availablity on the WWW will substantially improve access to and the value of collections as a research, intellectual and cultural resource for the sector and community, nationally and internationally and reform in museum practice.
