‘Presentation of the collection items are delivered in a web friendly view with a suite of must-have reports’
Museum Victoria – Australia’s largest museum organisation, is responsible for looking after the state’s collection of more than 16 million items, conducting research and providing cultural and science programs for the people of Victoria and visitors from Interstate and overseas. As part of its on-going strategic initiatives in the areas of delivering dynamic online content to the community, the Melbourne-based cultural institution required an integrated database solution to manage its digital online collections and its digitisation workflows.
The Lookatme™ solution at Museum Victoria is integrated with Axiell EMu – a collections management database for museums.
Integration between the Lookatme™ DAM with the EMu® catalogue system allows images and associated metadata to be mapped automatically from EMu®. Presentation of the collection items is delivered in a web friendly view via Lookatme™, available for public access and commercialisation. The Lookatme™ DAM allows Museum Victoria also to fulfil its digital asset management function for non-collection assets, such as event and built environment photography.
