Abstract : The paper presents an integrated environment which enables museum personnel to catalogue and at the same time publish online museum exhibits. The system is based on international standards and is highly customisable to cater the needs of a variety of museum types. Moreover, the underlying database allows storing for the same exhibit documentations for different audiences and in multiple languages, while it is extendable to accommodate new media types, languages, exhibits and information categories. The administrative part of the environment permits the restriction of certain functions to specific personnel roles, enforcing thus a general museum security policy regarding access to and modification of information. The environment presented is currently in use at the Athens University History Museum.
