||This paper deals with a document management application which is being devoloped for and implemented in the Industrial Museum of Saxony. Whereas most of the common museum documentation projects focus on the issue of collection management, this project is content-centered. It intends to establish an XML-based visitor-information-system, which enables the museum to provide on- sreen visitor information 'on-the-floor' and in the internet as well as print-output (PoD) automatically from the same data source. The paper will sketch the system's architecture and take a closer look at the con- ception and development of the document models, meta-data and stylesheets, which allow to create rich and diverse multimedia presentations. The discussion will outline some key demands of a publication system which is tailored to the needs and expectations of museum visitors as well as the museum staff.
