          I first encountered EVA London in 1995 through my establishment of the Virtual Library museums pages (VLmp), part of the World Wide Web Virtual Library. In 2003, I was invited back as a keynote speaker on the subject of website accessibility for cultural heritage resources. Since then I have been involved with every EVA London conference either as an author or since 2007 as a proceedings editor. This paper summarises the developments of the EVA London conference over the past 25 years from a personal viewpoint and celebrates the 30th anniversary of EVA London and the whole family of international EVA conferences. The development of the community around EVA (Electronic Visualisation and the Arts) is evaluated in the context of a Community of Practice. The paper also considers possible future directions for EVA.

          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.
