What Our Customers Say
Mark Pajak, Head of Digital
“Managing different collections in our system makes the collections accessible for cross-disciplinary searches. More often than not, researchers might not specialise in a specific field and they might want to know all the records we’ve got from say Bristol Park and they might want social history, they might want botany. Having all these records in the same system means we can bring back all those records in one search.”
How the National Maritime Museum creates engagement with their collections online and in the Museum
A few years ago, the Museum set a cardinal direction towards the future, which has virtually doubled visitor numbers.
One of the main objectives has been to make the diversity of the collections more visible and accessible in the Museum and online.

“For Curators, Conservators, Registrars, it’s a great way to coordinate between the three groups as to what’s going on with an object. It benefits you in so many ways, it really improves your work and you can accomplish so much more.”
