Web-based collections management software for museums and more

CollectionSpace is a dynamic community of professionals working in the arts, humanities, social, and natural sciences. We collaborate to design, develop, and share a community-supported platform for collections information management that: supports traditional collections management activities; enables the integration of emergent and dynamic new technologies into the information ecologies of museums; and is an effective and affordable alternative to one-off applications developed in-house and proprietary offerings. CollectionSpace is freely distributed under the ECLv2 license.

Where is everything?

Due to a security breach with our older, server-based wiki, we are working to migrate content to this cloud platform. If you can't find what you're looking for, drop us a note at and we'll prioritize that page or pages.
