Installing and Using CollectionSpace

For documentation on installing and using CollectionSpace, follow this link: Installing CollectionSpace.


CollectionSpace v5.0 introduces a new underlying UI framework used for the development of the CollectionSpace user interface.  The new framework is based on the React.js JavaScript library for building user interfaces.  We hope that basing our UI on the React.js library will allow for faster, simpler development and customization of CollectionSpace's user interface.

Release Notes

The UI-related customizations made for previous CollectionSpace versions will need to be migrated to the new React.js-based UI supplied with CollectionSpace v5.0.  We're working on documentation to help you upgrade from previous version of CollectionSpace.  Please revisit this page to see updates on the documentation.  Also, feel free to send email to to get help from the CollectionSpace community.

  1. After checking out the 5.0 demo, I see that valuable information to an arts organization that is the object identification information is still located in many different sections of the cataloging record.

    ex: Production person, title, production date, materials, acquisition source, brief description, dimensions- 

    Although the new demo allows you to have each section closed by default, the user still needs to scroll through many fields and many sections to see the most important fields. Do others have the need to see these details in one prominent place?



    1. As you all are self-hosting, you can hide any fields that you're not using or re-arrange the forms so that fields you use more often are up top. This requires some knowledge of HTML/CSS, so would need to be done by someone with technical know-how.
