Technical Roadmap 2018-2019

CollectionSpace is an open-source collections management application that meets the needs of museums, historical societies, biological collections, and other collections-holding organizations. CollectionSpace is designed to be configurable to each organization’s needs, serving as a gateway to digital and physical assets across an institution. The software is distributed via the ECLv2 license, and an active developer community ensures that CollectionSpace is continually improving. 

Development priorities for 2018-2019 will focus on two key areas: features and functionality identified by the CSpace community as highly desirable but lacking in the current version of the application, and targeted architectural improvements that will decrease the administrative overhead required to install, configure, migrate data to, host, and upgrade the application.
