CMS - Collection Management Systems
« on: 13 February 2018, 10:28:50 »
CMS are about managing archives etc, and the following are some web pages I found from a cursory scan of possibly useful software systems (that I did for a colleague in early 2018). I had not realised how huge an area this is (and bear in mind I know very little about this area).

Possibly useful advice

http://collectionstrust.org.uk/what-we-do/
http://carlibrary.org/CMS.htm

Free systems
