“COLLECTIONSPACE: CULTIVATING SHARED SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS AMONG COMMUNITIES OF PRACTICE”
*CollectionSpace: Cultivating Shared Software Solutions Among Communities of Practice*
Museum of the Moving Image, in partnership with University of California, Berkeley, Information Services and Technology Division and the Walker Art Center, will cultivate shared software solutions among diverse communities of practice within the museum field. To realize this goal, the project team, along with participants from these communities of practice, will significantly advance and extend the CollectionSpace (www.collectionspace.org) open source collections information management software application. Funding will also be used to create the infrastructure needed for each community of practice to implement, maintain, and sustain shared software solutions under the “community source” model.
The project will result in increased efficiency and lower costs of migrating, managing, accessing and publishing information to today’s web-based information platforms. It also has the potential to change the way museums and other collecting institutions participate in the development, use, and governance of new technologies.
