We’re excited to share with you a brief recap of what’s been happening in the CollectionSpace community over the last few months.

Welcome to New Implementers

Pop Culture Museum of New Jersey – This new museum breaking ground in 2022 will be using CollectionSpace for cataloging, archiving, and exhibition planning. The Museum’s collection includes pop culture items from film and television. 

Museum of Making Music (a division of the NAMM Foundation). The Museum’s implementation of CollectionSpace is aligned to support a massive renovation project by providing new and improved processes and procedures for cataloguing their collection of musical instruments and artifacts, as well as planning for special exhibitions.

Tech Updates

We’re continuing to add new features and functionality to the CollectionSpace Public Browser, and are currently testing a hosted version of the browser to ease implementation. You can view our test site at: https://outreach.collectionspace.org/search. If you are not currently hosting with LYRASIS, we encourage you to check out the sandbox site for inspiration, or plug the browser into your content management system and take it for a spin! 

If you are currently hosting with LYRASIS, we are happy to spin up a sandbox instance of the Public Browser for you for testing and evaluation. Please reach out to us at collectionspace@lyrasis.org for more details.
