In 2001, a year after its founding, Foundation initiated a survey on Collection Management Systems.

The result? Museums did not own digital cameras. With few exceptions, museums used Word, Excel or paper to inventory their collections.

Now in 2017 we are offering a new survey to see what mayor changes and opinions are now relevant for museums when choosing a Collection Management System.

We kindly request to participate in this brief survey.
The outcome will be published anonymously, and send to all participants individually.

All information is used for this purpose only, and not shared with anyone but the participants.

Please take some minutes to share your opinion, go to: SURVEY

  1. Hi Floris,

    I’ll be happy to complete the survey, but for the “Which program is used?” popup, it seems that EmbARK (from Gallery Systems, and widely deployed in the US) is missing from the options, and none of the other options apply (it’s not custom-made). I’d suggest adding options for both “EmbARK” and “Other Vendor System.” Hope this helps!
