eHive’s Online Help and Information pages have a new home: info.ehive.com. This is the first phase of our project to update the entire eHive.com website. Our development team is currently hard at work, rewriting eHive in newer technology. The end result will be an enhanced website built using a responsive design.
The Australian Ballet’s collection consists of approximately 30 000 costumes, and scenery and props for a hundred Productions. Vernon CMS was selected as the collection management system to support the management of this collection.
The Vernon Collection Management System, along with the eHive interface, was identified as an asset best suited to the Gallery’s requirements and future aims and objectives.
COLLECTION CONNECTION #99 includes articles about two web projects we have recently completed for Auckland Art Gallery and The Frick, a survey on the effects of publishing collections online, and a profile of Surf World’s use of eHive.
In May this year I spoke at the annual Museums Australia conference about “How to cope when you open your digital doors“. As research for the talk I sent out an online questionnaire and had follow-up discussions during with fifteen art and heritage organisations that had made the commitment to share the bulk of their collection records online.
A longer version of the presentation is coming out next year in the post-conference Museums Australia journal, but in the meantime you can read a quick recap of the survey results.
