From the Web site / du site W3: "In the last few years there has been massive growth in the use of digital technologies for learning in museums, science centres and galleries – both onsite in the form of digital interactives, and online via the creation of ever-more popular websites. As early as 2002 the number of virtual visitors to many museums' websites had already overtaken the number of physical visitors on-site. These developments, both within the walls of the institution and outside them, provide a number of challenges for educators and curators, at the heart of which lie the questions – what is distinctive about learning in museums, science centres and galleries, and how might this change or evolve through the increasing use of digital technologies?"

The Canadian Geographical Names Data Base (CGNDB) is maintained by Natural Resources Canada to store names for Canadian geographical features, including populated places, administrative areas, and water and terrain features (such as lakes, mountains). Museums may use the CGNDB to help with the consistent naming of Canadian geographical names in their collections databases. The CGNDB sometimes provides Canadian place names to a more detailed level than Thesaurus of Geographic Names (TGN); museums may wish to use it in parallel with TGN. Bilingually available online.
