CollectionSpace / LYRASIS
CollectionSpace is a free, open-source collections management application that meets the needs of museums, historical societies, biological collections & other collections-holding organizations. We are designed to be configurable to each organization’s needs, serving as a gateway to digital & physical assets across an institution. The software is distributed via the ECLv2 license & an active developer community ensures that CollectionSpace is continually improving. Our dynamic software is comprised of a suite of modules & services that serves as a flexible core of collections information from which interpretive materials and experiences – from printed catalogs to mobile gallery guides – may be efficiently developed. The extensible architecture allows it to be connected with other open-source applications already in use by the arts, humanities & life sciences sectors including those for archival management, flora and fauna research, online exhibition creation & digital asset management.
