Virtual Library: museums and funding



The WWW Virtual Library museums page here now receives over a
thousand virtual visits each day (doubling every three months). An
article is appearing in the 10 March UK Times Higher Education
Supplement (multimedia section).  The number of visits has just topped
the 100,000 mark in around half a year of operation. Here is a table of
"visitor" statistics:

        -------------------------------------

        |  8/94 |   3459 |      66 |     19 |
        |  9/94 |   8749 |     165 |     19 |

        |  2/95 |  24482 |     693 |     28 |
        |-------+--------+---------+--------|
        | Total | 102689 |    2342 |

I am seeking funding for this set of pages, since I currently maintain
them on a voluntary basis. Is any central WWW Virtual Library funding
planned? I think it would be worth trying to obtain US / EU / other
international funding for the Virtual Library and distributing this to
WWW VL sites in some way.  Would this be possible? Comments and
discussion welcome!
