Collections, Catalogs, and Clouds: How to Choose a Collections Management System

Choosing a Collections Management System (CMS) can be daunting for any institution. Every institution has different needs for a CMS and there are lots of great systems on the market. When choosing a CMS, everything from staff size and make up, to hardware capabilities, to public use must be considered. No one wants to end up with a CMS that does not suit them five years down the road. This workshop can help any sized institution be prepared to choose potential contractors and have meaningful conversations with them by providing tools for you to define what your institution needs, find potential CMS contractors, and ensure you are prepared to work with them. 

This webinar is produced through the State Archives Documentary Heritage and Preservation Services for New York program.
