Australian Museum has had a website for three and a half years. In September
1997 we launched a totally restructured and redesigned site. A primary
aim of the site is to promote two way communication via email, interactives,
enquiry, survey and other forms, between the virtual Museum visitors
and people working in the Museum. Presentation of rich content and experiences
about programs, research and collections of the Museum is available
online. Information is layered and selected to enable website visitors
to make choices about their journey through the site in a way that suits
them. We will be developing a high level of interactivity into our site.
We see the site as a place where our visitors can also make connections
to other places in the WWW via our search facilities, links and bookmarks.
