BTW Zetcom's MuseumPlus also works with Oracle (in fact this seems to be
the more common deployment), though the Ashmolean's installation of
MuseumPlus (version 5.5) is running on Microsoft SQL Server.

At the Ashmolean we have a series of extraction and import processes which
export object data from the underlying MuseumPlus SQL Server database, then
import it into a MySQL database connected to an implementation of
Keepthinking's CMS for delivery of collections information online (at least
for these sites, currently: http://jameelcentre.ashmolean.org and
http://ruskin.ashmolean.org ), though we're not (yet) using the current
version of Keepthinking's Qi system.

Hope this helps!

Paul
