From conception to implementation to final project this paper will demonstrate the importance of museum departments working in collaboration to achieve an institutional priority – providing online, in-depth access to museum collections and inspiring ways to interact with the collections. The paper will offer tips relevant to a broad scope of museum expertise, including long range planning, interdepartmental relationships, fundraising, cataloging collection objects, publicizing the project, and creating a new website.
