Where else is our content used? Online: BRICKS - finds identifier People’s Network Discovery Service Offline: Academic journals, papers, original research, desk based assessments, etc Where else could our content be used? The new British Museum website - for example, departmental pages could have recent finds that relate to their period (RSS or OAI-PMH to search our dbase) The 24 Hour Museum - for example local museum pages could have feeds of local finds (RSS) Local society websites Historic Environment Record - XML or OAI-PMH Web mashups - plot PAS finds, against Oxford Archaeology WMS, vs Megalithic Portal vs Museum locations (not done yet before you ask!)
What’s a mash up? “ A mashup is a website or application that combines content from more than one source into an integrated experience.” Wikipedia (a flawed resource….) It is really just synthesis………. The Potato Masher - German grenade
What sources can we mash? Pictures - your pictures or my pictures Mapping data - place is a common bond for all of us, it gives us identity RSS feeds - a way to share your content with others in their web pages or via special software
Mash in Google maps or Earth and analyse proximities

Recent statements "The future has to be, without question, the museum as a publisher and broadcaster," Neil MacGregor, director of the British Museum. "The challenge is, to what extent do we remain authors, and in what sense do we become publishers providing a platform for international conversations? I am certain that in the next 10 to 15 years, there will be a limited number of people working in galleries, and more effectively working as commissioning editors working on material online.” Nicholas Serota, director of the Tate
