The architecture of the portal and the mechanisms of data exchange shall be improved and automatised till the end of the funding period (2007). By then the further running of the portal will be possible with a small amount of time and effort. A consortium of the former project partners will maintain the portal after 2007.
The BAM-portal is on its way to become a nation-wide portal and access point to cultural information in libraries, archives and museums. The experiences gained during the realisation of the project as well as the collected metadata may also help to build a similar portal on an European level.
