Online artifact catalogues

We're attempting to build one right now with KE Emu software. This article gives an idea of what we're striving towards - "British Museum takes collection online; Ancient history meets cutting edge technology" by Ian Williams,, 14 Feb 2008

Obviously the British Museum is far larger - the article notes, "Around 275,000 of the museum's more than seven million treasures spanning two million years of history have already been uploaded to the new site, and the remaining items will follow over the coming months." I do think though that we'll get plenty of interest in our collections when we are able to make this work.
