CollectionSpace Domain Profiles

Overview

The adopters of CollectionSpace represent a wide range of different museum domains and communities of practice. To make it easier for museums and collections from different domains to benefit from CollectionSpace's core platform, while still maintaining information that is unique to their collections, we have developed a set of domain profiles. These profiles include extensions to the common CollectionSpace platform that support domain-specific practices - things like determination history for an herbarium or emulation data for a new media collection.

New implementers may choose to begin with an existing profile, work with the CollectionSpace program team to develop a new profile, or combine existing extensions and other customizations for a unique installation.
