Museum databases: they can be so much more than an expensive card catalog.

I've been working in museums since 1992. I'm witty, fun, smart, ethical, and deadly serious about museum collections as educational and cultural assets with high opportunity costs. It is not free to keep an artifact, artwork, manuscript, or publication forever. I challenge museums and libraries to think carefully about investing resources in collections that are relevant for, and representative of, their current and future audiences so that they may support the museum’s mission.

Right now, I'm working with Five Colleges, Inc in Amherst, MA to assess, and plan for the future of, a database shared by the art museums at Amherst College, Smith College, Mount Holyoke College, Hampshire College, University of Massachusetts - Amherst, and Historic Deerfield. We're also interfacing with other metadata projects to plan for linked data and linked open data with the other managed repositories - libraries, archives, special collections, natural history collections, and botanical gardens.
