We are thrilled that the world is starting to open up again! With more museums and cultural institutions opening we all have more opportunities to enrich our lives and the lives of our communities.
We are happy to announce that we launched several new items and features:
We listened. We’d heard from many of our users that the term “Business” did not seem appropriate for entities such as clubs, churches, or governmental bodies. After reviewing your feedback, we have changed the name of the “Business” profile to “Organization.” Instead of “Person or Business,” the parent is now “Person or Organization.” “Organization” is a much better descriptive term for any entity that is not an individual person, such as a business, club, governmental body, fraternal organization, etc. We have also added a “type” field so you can define what type of organization you are referring to.
Creating and tracking exhibitions are important and integral tasks for most museums. With so many moving parts, having the ability to easily document all aspects of the exhibition process is key to any successful exhibition program. Whether you are planning a traveling exhibition with loaned objects from around the country or the world, or coordinating an exhibition using objects in your permanent collection, concise records and clear organization are crucial to the exhibition's success.
From creating a checklist to documenting lenders and venues, CatalogIt is a key project management tool in the exhibition process. With the Exhibition Profile, museums are able to keep all the pertinent information easily together in one central place in the database and attach that information to all collection items, loans, venues and lenders. With CatalogIt’s new Insurance Profile it is simple to store and track all the policy and certificate information pertinent to your loans and venues.
Operating in Greene County, Pennsylvania, this volunteer-led archival project preserves photographs and documents related to genealogy and local history. Their team works with individuals, families, organizations, and repositories to digitally scan and archivally document historical items and make them available for free, public access.
Their unique, digitized-only collection allows families to retain custody of their original archival items and encourages local community members to research and share their collective family histories. What a fantastic way to engage and involve your community and learn about their stories- bringing local history back to life!
Hi, my name is Dahwi- I am a software developer at CatalogIt. I was born and raised in South Korea and came to the US in 2013. I recently graduated from Kalamazoo College with a degree in Mathematics and Computer Science. I started to work with CatalogIt as an intern in the summer of 2020 and have continued working with the team ever since. I mainly work on the backend of the CatalogIt application. With that being said, I, unfortunately, do not typically have direct interaction with CatalogIt users, but I always do hear what CatalogIt customers want and work to enable it behind the scenes.
I am very fortunate to work with the wonderful people at CatalogIt. The team, working remotely from all over the US while maintaining good chemistry and dynamic workflow, drives CatalogIt forward. Every day, I learn new things- not only technical aspects but also regarding the museum world. I was and still am amazed by how sophisticated collections are connected. I hope to develop CatalogIt to be an even more advanced product and provide a continually better user experience for our customers.
