Presents 12 case studies that demonstrate a variety of approaches to moving an existing database to the Web or creating a new Web- accessible database. The contributors discuss their problems as well as successes. The focus is on the processes and people involved, rather than on technical issues. Some of the projects profiled include the construction of a privately-produced site listing on-line books by women, the digitization of historical documents and photographs at the Library of Virginia, and the creation of a virtual bookstore.
