Last month, we announced the new features which enable you to customize your currency and units of measurement settings. Now, you can also set the way you’d like dates to appear. To change your default settings, click on the Main Menu (the three bars in the upper left:
), and select Settings, then select Default Settings. CatalogIt will also now automatically honor your local settings, so dates will display in the format customary for your country.
Do you sometimes find yourself documenting several nearly identical things, or even cataloging an item that is nearly identical to something you or a colleague had documented earlier? CatalogIt has a neat feature that can save you time and effort.
First, find the Entry that has already been recorded. From the Entry view mode (not in “Edit”), click on the Actions menu (the three dots in the upper right) and select, “Duplicate.” This generates a new Entry that is nearly identical to the first one- you’ll need to give the new Entry a name and add its own images and condition assessment. If your account has auto-numbering enabled (either Accession numbering and/or Entry/Object ID numbering), CatalogIt will auto-assign the next number for this new Entry. Save time and ensure cataloging consistency by using the “Duplicate” feature.
Located in the heart of downtown Fargo, North Dakota is a remarkably vibrant center for art and culture, the Plains Art Museum. There is always something new at the Museum- it offers approximately 12 special exhibitions along with smaller exhibitions each year, featuring art of the 20th and 21st centuries. Classes, lectures, studios, collaborations with other disciplines, as well as social events and performances complement the exhibition schedule. Particularly intriguing is a current exhibit titled, The Other Four, possibly the first of its kind for art museums- it is entirely dedicated to engaging the non-visual senses, an exhibit that must be experienced in person. Another current exhibit, Waasamoo-Beshizi, features the work of 25 contemporary Native American women artists- outstanding!
This year, CatalogIt is proud to be a sponsor of the Annual Meeting of the American Association for State and Local History (AASLH), which will be held August 28-31 in Philadelphia, PA. The program is shaping up to be a particularly good one with a wide array of engaging sessions as well as some fascinating tours showcasing important sites of local, state and national history. If you are attending AASLH this year, please stop by the CatalogIt booth on Thursday or Friday and say hello!
