Manage collections. Create connections.
Vernon Systems has more than 30 years’ experience in creating software for the museum, gallery and cultural heritage sectors. Our systems are used around the world by institutions to catalogue, manage and publish information about collections.
Vernon CMS is a modular collection management system that handles all common collection processes and types of objects.
We have designed a range of add-ons and modules to complement the core Cataloguing module.
Our clients range from volunteer managed societies to large organisations caring for millions of objects over multiple locations.
eHive supports object cataloguing, storing images, and managing acquisition information. It can also be used as a publishing platform.
Communities in eHive allow users to connect on the basis of a theme, such as a geographic location or type of collection.
You can access eHive data from WordPress and other applications using eHive’s extensive programming interfaces.
Let us help you convert your data. We’ve worked with many types of collections and databases.
We form a tight-knit group dedicated to providing expert support for our proven range of products.
We can consider your requirements, including any customisation and data migration, and prepare a detailed quote for you.
Half of the museums planning to publish their collection online in 2016 have done it…… Did the other half give up? This is the second year that Vernon Systems has surveyed New Zealand and Australian Museums about how they share their collections online. While the response is encouraging, these results only represent a small segment of Australasian Museums. This year we had 73 responses, and last year the number was 79, from a possible 500 that were sent the survey.
Last year we contacted you with our Museum Survey. We were very happy with the response we had from Australian and New Zealand museums. Our survey looked at whether museums shared their collections online, and if so, how. The results can be seen here. This year we are following up the survey. Please take a few minutes to answer a few quick questions. All answers will remain anonymous and we are happy to share the results. Enter the survey here.
This issue of Collection Connection profiles some of the recent online collection microsites we have worked on, recaps Alex von der Becke’s visit to our head office, includes Leisa’s thoughts on the MuseumNext conference, and a has list of our upcoming conference events.
