“The papers in this session reveal a growing concern with our ability to share complex cultural heritage information in digital form. But what about the vast quantities of information held by museums and institutions that lack the technical, material, and financial resources to share them in a virtual environment? If we are agreed that we should be working together to increase the amount of information about cultural heritage resources available to a broad public over the internet, we must also consider how we may include participants outside or at the periphery of the first world.
