What is the most comprehensive directory of museum online collections as of today? It seems there was an ICOM page for that but apparently it's no longer available.

  • Did you already try searching for museum+collection+metadata?

  • What exactly are you looking for? Names of pieces? Images? Descriptions?

  • Well, I'm looking for names, creators, creation dates, technique, material, provenance, size, digital image, inventory number, bibliography, descriptions but sometimes even a thumbnail image with title only is useful ;) Strangely, in spite of the fact that hundreds or thousands of museums publish their collections online there is no a simple up-to-date list of urls of online collections arranged geographically or in any other way.

  • @JanDoggen this query looks promising but does not return any interesting results. Maybe except this list collections.si.edu/search/about.htm#museum-collections which is exactly what I'm looking for, except it's very short.
