Pachyderm 2.0 Project is a partnership led by the New Media Consortium and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The project is funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services. According to the New Media Consortium's "About the Project" page "The new tool will be based on Pachyderm, the authoring and publishing tool developed by SFMOMA to author its successful series, Making Sense of Modern Art." SFMOMA also used Pachyderm 1.0 to create Web presentations featuring the works of Romare Bearden and Frank Stella. These online presentations feature Macromedia Flash plus QuickTime movies to produce interactive features. The project will lead to an online document viewer (what a reader sees and uses when accessing the Amazon and Google Print document viewing screens) for paper-based media such as books and manuscripts.
