Digital museums become necessary when we have to present the precious collections to more and more visitors while preventing the state of preservation of the collections deteriorating over the time. It has significance to share and protect expensive museum resources. However, most current digital museum systems present the vast amount information in a static and primitive fashion and are not fully capable of dealing with generally heterogeneous and isolated resources. In this paper, we propose a grid-enabled digital museum system to improve the quality, availability and variety of the information presentation and sharing by incorporating grid-computing technologies. By designing cooperative grid services, we could efficiently and effectively organize, present and share the resources over the grid. The framework and workflow of the system are illustrated and the implementation details are also given.
