Sir John Soane's Museum uses the full suite of CollectionsIndex+ modules - Archive, Books, Object, and Asset - to manage their diverse collection of art, antiquities, architectural drawings, and image assets. Selected records are published to a bespoke Collection Online website, built by System Simulation and styled to match the design of the Museum's existing public site.
The Charles Dickens Museum approached System Simulation with their needs for a collections management system and we provided them with MuseumIndex+. Our CollectionsOnline also provides access to the collections for scholars, researchers, members of the public, staff, and volunteers.
The Canal & River Trust replaced an existing CALM system with CollectionsIndex+, to manage their collections of objects and archives jointly in a single database. They also export selected records to a CollectionsOnline website built and hosted by System Simulation.
Broadening access to 150,000 images held by the Medical Photographic Library (MPL) was a core aim for the Wellcome Library. Our solution provided an integrated system based on ImageIndex+ for cataloguing and digitising the entire collection, providing picture library management with image delivery and transaction management over the internet.
Through collaboration with the staff at the museum, we delivered creative design and robust implementation for the new interpretation kiosks and the new website. Each of the 30 kiosks spread throughout the gallery tells the unique story of around 10 objects in the immediate vicinity, using pictures, oral histories and video.
