The Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam is an almost 150-year-old museum housed in a nineteenth-century building with an added twenty-first-century wing that's sometimes referred to as "The Bathtub." The museum is now providing online access to the roughly 90,000 artifacts in its collection. While it's possible to search broadly across the collection materials, there are also many ways to limit searching and come up with a manageable browsing list. For example, a search can be limited to only items that have an image, by maker's name, or by format. One downside to the display of collection materials is that after the full description of a work is retrieved, it's not possible to browse the next item in the list; the only choices are to go back to the search hit list or view more works by the same artist.
