In order to effectively integrate and share the enormous dispersed resources of various digital museums, University Digital Museum Grid (UDMGrid) has been developed to provide one-stop information services about kinds of digital specimens in the form of grid services, based on ChinaGrid Support Platform (CGSP), which is a generic grid middleware serves well in various grid applications. This paper not only presents the overall architecture of CGSP-based UDMGrid, but also the ontology and its services, heterogeneous database access and integration, the logging and monitoring in UDMGrid, which are indispensable to UDMGrid, but not yet contained by CGSP, and can be easily incorporated to CGSP.
