Holography is now featured regularly on the Internet, particular on the World Wide Web (WWW) which provides text, still and animated graphics, video and sound information on an ever expanding catalogue of subjects to an ever expanding audience of users. During the last year the number of holography sites on the WWW has increased rapidly and now includes institutions, private individuals, commercial holography companies, publishers and enthusiasts. Is what they provide useful and are there any major benefits to this system which could not be achieved with more traditional methods of communication? A review of several holography sites is provided, a case study of the development of one of those sites is given in detail and an extensive reference list of WWW addresses is included.
