Configuration and Data Maps - Cataloging, Procedures, and Vocabularies

CollectionSpace Profile Schema and Extension Inventory

CollectionSpace supports a wide range of domains. In order to facilitate adoption among disparate domains, we have developed a set of recommended configurations and extensions to the common CSpace data model. An extension is a group of fields added to a procedure (e.g. Loans) or authority (e.g. Geographic Location) to support the work of a specific domain, such as fine art or anthropology. A group of procedures, authorities, and extensions combined to support the work of a specific domain are referred to as that community's profile.

In the below table, the columns each represent an available CollectionSpace profile. The COMMON profile includes those fields and procedures common to most collecting organizations. Moving along the columns, each domain-specific profile includes a list of all available procedures, whether they have been configured to support the domain or use the common schema, and whether they include any extensions. 

The profiles are merely a starting point, or template, for your installation. Additional institution-specific configuration may be done, and extensions may be added to any profile or implementation - not just those where they're noted on this table.

The schema on this page have been updated to the 5.0 release of CollectionSpace.
