Written for museum executives, curators, and computer programmers and librarians with museum clients, this book offers a detailed exploration of the use of computers to record and control the physical objects that comprise museum collections. Equally applicable to collections contained in major museums and to those residing in the far more numerous small museums, Museum Collections and Today's Computers show how computers can be effectively and cost-efficiently used to perform a number of museum activities, including accession, registration, cataloging, inventory control, lending, exhibiting, and research. Throughout, the authors focus on the unique nature of museum collections and the special needs that result from uniqueness.
