Collectie Gelderland was started in 2001, then called IGEM (Internet Gelderse Musea). Smaller and large museums from Gelderland can use this website to share their collections online. The audience can respond ('reageer') to objects and share ('deel') them with friends and colleagues, a new feature that has been used well since the release of the website. Specialist and private collectors are offering new information about various objects on a dayly basis.
