Since 1995 the La Trobe University Library has been building upon the infrastructure and experience provided by a National Priority (Reserve) Fund Grant for the Library Image Database Project. Quite independently Dr. Richard Cosgrove, La Trobe University Department of Archaeology, gained a 1996 C.A.U.T. grant to develop a text and CD-ROM for teaching skills in faunal analysis. This paper discusses the intentions and outcomes of these projects and how advances have been achieved as a collaborative approach has developed into a working model for building multimedia Web resources for research and learning.
