treasures through dissemination of those resources across

(MuseDoma) registrants of the .museum TLD will
have the opportunity to voice concerns and offer suggestions
for establishment of the domain's management process.

of the globe will benefit from the resources Internet
technology provides and, eventually, a suite of services
designed to help the global museum community as a whole.
