8 MICHAEL in Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland Chris Bailey, Chris Delaney and Jane Robinson Methodology 93 Registered/Accredited museums in Wales A desk top assessment of Welsh museum web sites was undertaken The data was entered into a questionnaire format. Each museum was then contacted to validate and update the data. We failed to verify and upgrade data for only 3 museums.

9 MICHAEL in Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland Chris Bailey, Chris Delaney and Jane Robinson Grading system for museum web sites developed A * site is basically an on line leaflet with visitor information and a brief collection overview. A** site is as before, with good collection overviews. A*** site is as before, with substantial details about the collection, but not an on line catalogue. A **** site is as before, with all or elements of the collection available on line. This may include detailed descriptions of items, images and a search facility.
