Copyright & RiCollectionSpace Community Spotlight Conversation: Cataloging and Exhibiting Time-Based Media with the Museum of the Moving Image

Join us on Wednesday, March 30th, 2022 at 1:00pm Eastern for the next webinar in our Community Spotlight series. In this webinar, Regina Harsanyi, and Miranda Hambro from the Museum of the Moving Image (MoMI) will share the work they’ve done designing extensions for CollectionSpace to improve support for cataloging, description, and exhibition of born-digital and time-based works. MoMI staff will share information about the standards and references used to develop the draft requirements, share the process of working with the CollectionSpace program team to finalize the new field list, create and workshop wireframes, and prepare the extension for inclusion in an upcoming CollectionSpace release.  

The webinar is FREE to attend; click on https://www.lyrasis.org/Content/Pages/Event-Details.aspx?Eid=3E35778A-9583-EC11-80F9-00155D0A2732 to register. 

Functionality Feature: CSV Importer

Have you tried the CollectionSpace CSV Importer yet? The Importer provides a way to batch import data into your CollectionSpace instance from a CSV file. You can use the webapp to add new records to CollectionSpace, update existing records, and even bulk upload images! Email megan.forbes@lyrasis.org for training if you’re ready to get those old inventory spreadsheets or the contents of that dying hard drive into the safety of CollectionSpace.
