CollectionSpace for AAM

CollectionSpace is the leading web-based, open-source collections information management system used to manage the day-to-day activities of museum collections professionals and others who work with art, artifacts, objects, and specimens.

CollectionSpace provides: 

  • Standards-based collections management workflows  
  • Support for diverse collections from art to specimens 
  • Web-based platform with unlimited user accounts 
  • Robust tools to store and describe digital assets 
  • Public discovery tools for museums and consortia 
  • Native API for data sharing and integrations 


The CollectionSpace Community represents a wide range of museum domains and communities of practice. To make it easier for collecting organizations from different domains to benefit from CollectionSpace's core platform, while still maintaining information that is unique to their domains, we have developed a set of profiles. These profiles include extensions to the core CollectionSpace platform that support domain-specific practices - things like determination history for an herbarium or emulation data for a new media collection.
