The web developers for this project purchased our WPDK
to customize the interface and add shopping cart functionality. They have also used the WPDK to develop many other online databases for their various collections. Visit the Glenbow Museum's Collections & Research web page @ http://www.glenbow.org/collections/search/
Below are some of the online databases @ the Glenbow Museum & Archives...
