This October we gather together for our annual Vernon User Group meetings. Registrations have closed for the user group meetings in New Zealand and Australia. On the first day, there are some case studies presented by Vernon Users and we host talks about the challenges and milestones that we have passed in the most recent year.
The second day is training. We will cover Advanced Searching, Advanced Reporting, Copyright in Vernon, Library and Archives, Group and Member records, XML Import, and Accession Number Formats.
We have continued to have a strong interest from Vernon CMS users wanting to publish their collections online. Culture Waitaki and Te Awamutu Museum have both launched new online collections and we have upgraded several existing online collections to the most recent version of the Browser module. (Version 5.2)
Case Study – Bunjil Place Gallery
Opened in October 2017, Bunjil Place is the first facility of its kind, bringing together creativity, entertainment and community in a way that is unparalleled in Australia. Within the $125 million dollar building, designed by award-winning international architects Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp (fjmt), is housed an 800 seat theatre, a 200 seat black-box studio, a function center with capacity to seat 350 people, a three-story public library, an outdoor community plaza, an art gallery and offices for 800 City of Casey staff.
Each year we ask for you to take a few minutes to answer a brief survey looking at whether museums share their collections online, and if so, how.
It is that time again. It would be great to have your input in these 9 questions. And feel free to pass the survey on to any museum collections that may be interested.
Notes from three different talks from the annual Association of Independent Museums (AIM) conference.
Held in the attractive Nottinghamshire market town of Newark (or Newark-on-Trent to give it its full name) and dominated by the picturesque ruin of Newark Castle by the River Trent, the theme was ‘How to be a great destination’
We have found a need for short, focused webinars that focus on the basic functions of Vernon CMS. It can be daunting to arrange time and funding for training. This is a way that Vernon CMS users can brush up on their skills in a webinar on the first Wednesday every second month
The most recent webinar, on the 2nd of October, was about how to use Advanced Search, Select Statements and Search Operators.
The next webinar is about how to use Word Merge in Vernon CMS. This will be on 4th December. You can find out more here.
