The Swiss Army Knife Approach: How Far Can You Push Collection Management Systems in a Changing World

A session at MCN 2012

Thursday 8th November, 2012

4:00pm to 4:30pm (PST)

Te Papa's new long-term strategy challenges us to enable community storytelling, co-create knowledge and experiences with communities and to collect intangible cultural heritage. What future does a collection management system (CMS) have in managing these new types of collections, formats and associated processes and workflows? Drawing from our own experiences at Te Papa in driving so much collection management activity and collection access from our CMS, we question whether a CMS can, or should, evolve even further to manage user generated content, co-created knowledge and intangible cultural heritage.
