7 Museums manage a complex data universe

8 So what’s the problem? Too many legacy systems Too many technology platforms Not enough funding Too much risk!

9 The core of a scholarly information ecosystem Controlled Vocabularies Data Sharing Digital Assets & Digitization Repositories and Preservation Education Outreach Mapping and Visualization Exhibitions Field Data Collection Archives and Libraries … a platform for research, education, and public service

10 CollectionSpace is an open-source, web-based software application for the description, management, and dissemination of museum collections information – from artifacts to images, from Art History to Zoology Initial development funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation

11 Technology and architecture Open source web-oriented technology stack – HTML, CSS, and JavaScript – Open source: Java, PostgreSQL, Tomcat, jQuery – Web services (REST) and plug-in architecture: Enable data sharing and interoperability – Accessible: Works great with keyboard and assistive technologies ECM as a platform CollectionSpace-as-a-Service: Hosting models

12 Innovation and sustainability Technology and architecture – Multi-tenancy – Schema extensions and customization – Enterprise content management – Hosting options Organization – Open source – Community-based – An organizational home (to be announced soon)

13 Schema model for a customized service deployment Schema extension model
