Here’s the June edition of the CollectionSpace Newsletter. As we move into the summer months, the CollectionSpace team continues to be hard at work, updating and adding new things to the platform.  Read on to learn more about what we’ve been up to. 

Welcome New Implementers

University of Hong Kong – We are pleased to announce our newest CollectionSpace implementer, the University of Hong Kong (HKU), which will use CollectionSpace to manage works of art and culture across the university, including the University Museum and Art Gallery, Libraries, and campus art. The 1000+ paintings, sculptures, and other works are in different locations across campus, and have not previously been united under one collections management system. We look forward to working with our new partners at HKU. 

University of Michigan – We are delighted to welcome a new member to the Material Order consortium, the Art, Architecture, and Engineering Library (AAEL) at the University of Michigan. Librarians at the AAEL will use CollectionSpace to manage the hundreds of material types and samples in their collection, and work together with their colleagues in the consortium to expand the resources freely available to all via Material Order Search
