Please join us in welcoming the Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive to the CollectionSpace Community!
BAM/PFA is one of the largest university art museums in the US with a collection of more than 20,000 objects and 14,000 films “characterized by themes of artistic innovation, intellectual exploration, and social commentary, and reflecting the central role of education in BAM/PFA’s mission”.
The Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive is currently planning a move into a new physical space, and CollectionSpace will be an important part of that effort. A series of web applications that leverage CollectionSpace’s RESTful API were built for the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology to help with their very large move, and these are being used with little modification to help BAM/PFA with their inventory and move activities.
UC Berkeley is now home to five major campus collections in CollectionSpace — the BAM/PFA Art Collection the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology the UC Botanical Garden, the University and Jepson Herbaria (public portal), and the BAM/PFA Library CineFiles collection.
