Who and what is Museums Sites for?
Museums Sites has been created to offer small and medium size museums a professional and comprehensive way to manage, share and publish information about their organisation and their collection.
In our experience, there are many small to medium museums without sufficient budget to implement a serious collection management system and create a proper website and collection online. This means that information is often managed and published in a way that is less than optimal.
In terms of collection management, museums range from paper records to Excel spreadsheets or home-grown databases, all of which are difficult to manage and keep up-to-date. Their website - if any - can often not be doing enough to promote the content and activity of the museum.
Museums Sites has been introduced to address all these issues and give smaller museums a professional collection management system and an accessible, state-of-the art website for a fraction of the cost it would take to use other systems.
