The Museum of the Moving Image, in partnership with the University of California, Berkeley Information Services and Technology Division, and the Walker Art Center, will advance CollectionSpace, an open-source collections information management software designed to answer the need for a more effective collections information and management tool. The project will allow partners to work with five diverse museum communities of practice to shape and extend CollectionSpace software to suit their diverse needs. This project will also model a new way for museums and other collecting institutions to participate in the development, use, and governance of new technologies.
