CatalogIt is an application for documenting the Story of Things. Each story begins with a single item — where, when, how, and by whom it was made; what it was used for; and how it came to be where it is today. As an item’s story unfolds, it is enriched by relationships to other items, people, and places based on shared physical characteristics and history. CatalogIt empowers you to discover these interconnected stories, record them in detail, and present them in an accessible, inspiring format.
Instantly capture your collections using your phone’s camera or another device--in the moment or later. Snap and upload photos to the app from any location, whether you’re at a historic site, in a basement storage room, at an auction or on the go.
Create detailed entries to document your items, including physical properties, records, images, and changes over time. Securely track and update entries-- including value, location, and condition-- adding to their stories in real time.
Leverage the power of your collections by managing and maintaining your objects, coordinating exhibitions, and sharing your stories with the world. Choose to share data through CatalogIt’s flexible web publishing options, using the CatalogIt HUB or your own website, using our API, WordPress plugIn, or iframe integration.
Wherever you have internet access, you can manage your collections using CatalogIt. Browse, add photos—even from your phone’s camera—and edit your collections via mobile or desktop, across PC, Mac, iOS, and Android.
Intuitive navigation, data entry, searching, and profile creation. Detailed profiles enrich your collections, building and revealing relationships.
Access your collections via smartphone, tablet, laptop, and desktop computer. Create an entry on your smartphone and it’s immediately available for you and your team to view and edit from any device.
