          Abstract

          In this paper, we analyse trends of the first wave of museum websites (from the 1990s to the early 2000s) to understand how the characteristics of the Internet (specifically the World Wide Web), of museum staff, and museum audiences shaped the adoption of technology and new forms of participation and what they can tell us about engagement for museums of the future. The early development of online museum resources parallels the development of the EVA conference, which was establishing itself at a similar time.

          Technology Futures for the Creative Industries: Presenting the Cr-eAM Roadmaps

          Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last, you create what you will (George Bernard Shaw) The CRe-AM project aims to bridge communities of creators with communities of technology providers and innovators, in a collective, strategic Roadmapping efford in order to streamline, coordinate and amplify collaborative work. It will thereby develop, enhance, and mainstream new ICT technologies, processes and tools, to address the needs of different sectors of the creative industries (e.g. arts, culture, design, e-publishing, media, new media, architecture, music technology etc.).

              The World Wide Web Virtual Library of museums

              The World Wide Web (WWW) Virtual Library of museums is an interactive directory of on-line museums on the global Internet computer network of networks. Virtual ‘visitors’ can select a ‘hyperlink’ to a museum of their choice (categorised by country) and view on-line hypermedia information and exhibits provided by that museum. Since its inception in 1994, the page has received over 200,000 visits, with around a thousand a day recently, easily the most popular page at our site. The paper includes a brief introduction to this library, some of the museum sites linked to it, visitor statistics, and possible future directions.
