Wishing all of our readers a Happy Canada Day and a Happy 4th of July to anyone who celebrated these holidays at the start of the month. Summer is officially here, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t keeping busy here at CollectionSpace. Read on to find out about what we’ve been up too! 

Welcome New Implementers

University of Minnesota – Landscape Arboretum – This 1,200-acre horticultural garden and arboretum is an essential part of the university, acting as a research center for the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS).  

The Arboretum is an AAM-accredited organization with a small, yet growing collection of contemporary sculptures and other fine art works located on its grounds. The team will use CollectionSpace to document accessioning details and conservation reports, and to manage inventory procedures. CSpace will provide the Landscape Arboretum staff with the tools they need to manage the care and maintenance of the collection and deliver online content to their users through the public browser. We are excited to have the Arboretum join our community and look forward to seeing their work in action!  

Join us for a Summer Open House

Mark your calendars! Thursday, July 28th @ 2pm Eastern we are hosting a summer open house to bring our CSpace community together to meet the program team, ask questions and see a short walk-through of the platform. This event is FREE and intended to be very casual, so we encourage you to bring friends and colleagues along to learn more about CSpace and what our current implementers are doing.
