21 June 09:00Autry Museum of the American West

Learn about online collections and large scale moves

The  Autry Museum of the American West has used Mimsy XG as their collections management software since 2003. The Autry uses MWeb to share their collection online with the public and has used various barcoding tools created by Axiell, including Axiell Move, to manage large scale moves.  

Our West Coast Roadshow will focus on presentations and discussion groups surrounding the following themes:

-Online Collections
             - Linked Open Data
             - Accessibility and Inclusivity

- Large Scale Collections Moves
             - Creating Barcodes
             - Moving Storage Facilities
             - Maximizing Efficiency and Reducing Error
