Your institution has a collection. How will you look after it?

Think about all the information vital to properly document, insure, and appraise your institution’s artwork. The basics — image, artist, title, dimensions, media, location, original cost, and insurance value — are probably obvious. But there is much more that can and should be tracked by collection management software. For instance, provenance (previous owner history), exhibition history, and bibliography are extremely important to prove authenticity and create an accurate appraisal. Poor record keeping can cost thousands in inaccurate valuations. Artsystem5 provides the most efficient means to document, research, manage, and display collection information.
