The most powerful way to manage your collections.

CatalogIt is an application for documenting the Story of Things. Each story begins with a single item — where, 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 with relationships to other items, people, and places based on shared physical characteristics and history. CatalogIt makes it easy to discover those interconnected stories, record them in detail, and present them in an accessible, inspiring format.

Image-Centric Browsing & Viewing
